Alpaca Show

I took Deuce, Three, Jack and Four of Hearts to the Alpaca show today. I don't think that before today they even knew what an alpaca was. Now they are clamoring to have one. I don't think I knew that they came in so many varieties. They seem like very friendly animals, although one breeder said that it was because they were bored.

The favorite were the black alpacas. We purchased some black alpaca wool to make Deuce a sweater, when I finish the one I am working on now. It is unbelievably soft. Kind of like cashmere crossed with angora. I can't wait to knit with it.

For now, here are some pictures from the show.
