Alpaca Ranch (with photos) September 26, 2007

Filed under: 2007,spinning — crazymonkeycreates @ 6:35 pm

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:

Mama and Cria

The cria liked to hide behind its mama, and did so most of the time we were there.

Hiding behind Mama

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.

    Love the Mama and cria shots. That dark brown is soooooo yummy looking.

    Oh yeah, 80’s for sure!
