Alpacas are cute!

Captain's Log, Stardate 03.23.2010

I just got a newsletter from Yarnmarket.com and they had this picture that I just had to share with you guys!

Isn't he adorable??? Who says alpacas aren't cute???? If you want to see more of them, check out the pictures from when I visited an alpaca farm in July 2009.

I'm hoping to get to a fiber festival in June and buy a raw alpaca fleece so I can spin my own alpaca yarn. They say it's easy to process (as opposed to sheep fleeces) and it might be a cheaper way to get alpaca yarn than buying the alpaca roving or commercially-spun yarn. I think I'd like to spin sock yarn with it to see if it's warmer than my wool sock yarn.
