On Sunday, we visited an alpaca ranch, Double Helix Alpacas, which is a couple of miles from my house. Kirsten & Jerry, Linda, and I met at the Coffee Haus in Black Forest, and carpooled over. We saw the alpacas first, then the fleeces. No pics of the fleeces, though.
Here’s a mama alpaca and her little baby cria:
The cria liked to hide behind its mama, and did so most of the time we were there.
There were plenty of cute alpaca faces:
And sweet moments like this one:
There was even some 80’s hair. Like totally!
I bought 3 lbs of fleece from Peekaboo (whose cria is using her as a pillow), and it’s lovely, a long staple fleece with great crimp. I can’t wait for bobbins to be empty so that I can spin it.
