Fabulous fibers...

Like sheep, alpacas are sheared once a year to obtain the fleece, which is then spun into yarn. But the yarn that results from the little camel cousins is worlds better than wool... Visually as lovely as most yarns are to anyone who knits, weaves or crochets but to touch it is to fall in love with it.
