Denise Martel

Denise Martel retired from a varied career in education to an alpaca farm, focussing on alpaca fibre. Being an educator, it was natural for her to want to pursue learning in this new world. However, as she searched for opportunities to learn about alpaca wool/fibre, she quickly realized that there was not much available. Joining up with other fibre enthusiasts and under the umbrella of Alpaca Ontario, the Fibre Initiative Committee guided the development of fibre courses so that alpaca farmers would have the opportunity of learning best practices for obtaining high quality fibre products. This was done with the assistance of the alpaca fibre international expert, Cameron Holt, from Australia and Cathy Merkley, certified classer and instructor, trained by Cameron.
