Les Alpagas de la Petite Côte

Yesterday, I've visited an alpaca farm (livestock): Les Alpagas de la Petite Côte. It was really nice and truly interesting despite the rain.  It's quite close to where I live so I hope to go again sometime in the spring maybe!  In the meantime, here are a few pictures.
 








The yarns they make are in their natural colorways exclusively for the moment.  It is gorgeous.  My camera is broken :(  This is why I cannot show you the two skeins of gray yarn (sport weight) that I bought.  They will make wonderful winter accessories!

Have a great week everyone!

That is such a sweet farm!
Sorry to hear about your camera. Hope it gets fixed soon, so that I can drool over your gray yarn!

Isn't alpaca fiber the softest? It also has a wonderful smell (at least in my opinion). Looks like you had an amazing time, I hope to see those skeins knitted up into something beautiful very soon! Sorry about the camera, I'm not sure what I would do without mine.

Alpaca's attitudes are so much nicer than llamas. And their fiber is so soft. I can't wait to see what you make with your new yarn.

alpaca fiber is my favorite to knit with - it's sooo soft, it smells wonderfully and it's reasonably priced. Friends of mine of live in the Vancouver area own a small alpaca farm (as in they keep 11 in their backyard...) and they make the fibers themselves - spinning, dying, etc. It's like a dream come true...
