That time I went to an alpaca farm...

Did I ever tell you guys about the time I went to an alpaca farm?   Okay, I guess I mentioned it and shared one photo... but that was it.  So, here are a bunch of photos from the Sewell Alpaca farm.  These photos are probably from November, ha.  But, better late than never!

On the farm they have 55 alpacas and each and everyone has their own name, and knows their own name.  There is a little shop on the farm where you can buy knitted goods or yarn made from the alpaca fleece.  When you buy yarn from their farm, it says which alpaca the yarn came from.  It's so cool to be able to buy yarn and meet the animal that it came from.  I'll have to show you guys what I made with the yarn sometime.   Alpacas are such sweet and SOFT animals. I couldn't get over how soft they are!  I want one, or two... along with my sheep, of course!  Haha.  Hopefully Squirt will get along with them...

  4. They're really cute animals.. here, in the north of my country are "llamas" (sorry, i don't know the correctly translation..) they're from the same family of camelids :)
    The last year, i went to the north on vacations and I could buy some alpaca scarves ♥ they're so soft and warming!
