ISSUE 437 | 21 NOVEMBER 2019 | 26


We have received our new alpaca yarn (wool) processed from our alpaca fleece. I was so excited opening the box and we have the lovely selection of blue, yellow, purple and rose brown I was hoping for. That’s me sorted now the nights have drawn in, I’ll be crocheting hats and scarves and gloves to my heart’s content - I just need to persuade my Mum to stay in occasionally now and get knitting!


Alison from Al’s Arty Farty (check her out on Facebook) has been busy too! For the past 18 months, Al has been needle felting keyrings, badges and fridge magnets for our little shop, all made from our alpaca fleece. She’s expanded her range into pencil tops, notebooks and Christmas decorations and our smaller visitors are loving being able to take away a little bit of alpaca of their own.


It’s been extremely wet on and off and I’ve lost count of how many times I have been soaked to the skin feeding the alpacas and cleaning their paddocks. The beasts don’t mind it at all though, probably because their


fleece, which is getting nice and thick now, is totally water repellent. So, while they may look soggy on the outside, the inside of their fleece stays dry and keeps them warm. They are pretty filthy mind you, because the wet conditions don’t stop them rolling in the grass, leaves and mud. I guess I should just be glad the fleece is self- cleaning too, so I don’t have to brush them or do anything to them. We have had to cut their toenails again though and not only did I get spit in my hair, Lucky Star decided to have a pee on my arm too!


Alpacas do need shelter, to get out of the rain and the sun and mine do have lovely three-sided dry shelters well- stocked with hay for munching. However, they choose not to use them most of the time and are usually found huddled up against the hedgerows if it’s excessively wet and windy. It’s just as well alpacas are built to cope with harsh conditions; I’m betting there’s a lot more to come!
