Southern Oaks Alpacas Suri Alpaca Farm - About Us

Meander through winding country roads in sunny Brooksville, FL, and you will come upon a unique and hidden treasure: Southern Oaks Endless Possibilities Fiber Studio. The property is shaded by sprawling ancient live oaks, peppered with Spanish moss, along with a private lake in the back yard which is of great inspiration to resident artist Belinda Chapnick.

Belinda was a commercial artist running an industrial Felted Scarfgraphic company (for 28 years with her husband Rod) long before she discovered fiber. Her love affair with fiber started 12 years ago, when she and her hubby moved to the country and started their alpaca farm. She discovered all of the wonderful, diverse, and endless possibilities that can be created with fiber and she was hooked!

After building their herd of alpacas up to over 50 animals, the focus turned to the fiber and what to do with it. That's when Belinda started her "Endless Possibilities" Fiber Studio, where she creates her wearables and art along with teaching classes.

A variety of techniques are used and taught at the studio; such as needle felting, nuno felting, wet felting, resist felting, hand spinning, weaving, crocheting, dyeing and fiber prep.

She uses many different fibers, alpaca being the main focus, along with merino and other wools; mohair, silks, angora, etc., the list goes on. All raw fibers used at the studio are processed and dyed by Belinda.

Belinda continues her education in fiber and different techniques by taking classes several times a year from other fiber artists and teachers.

You will find her during season late Oct. ~ April selling her wearables, alpaca products, art, and fiber supplies at art shows and markets. Visit the web, etsy, or farm store (on the property open May ~ Oct.)

Join her group of fiberholics who meet the last Sunday of every month at the fiber studio. Bring a fiber project or just come for some lively conversation.

Twice a year she hosts at her home BYOW (bring your own wheel) Spin Daze event. Occasionally her Endless Possibilities Fiber Studio will host visiting artists who will teach a class.

The possibilities are endless at Southern Oaks Endless Possibilities Fiber Studio.
