To the New Year, and beyond

Hi, belated Happy New Year to you all. Lovely sunny day today, took some alpaca pictures for the blog. It is a joy to be out with them all when the weather is so amazing. Busy with knitting to orders, just finished some alpaca mittens took a photo which when I saw the picture it looks just like an alpaca face (if you screw your eyes up a bit !).
Alpaca face, what do you think ?   

Islay for comparison

Our next picture is of our star alpaca of 2011, CWL Tangaroa, Supreme Champion at the Heart of England Fleece Show and then Reserve Champion at the Scottish Fleece Show. We have spent the holidays deciding who will be his first mating partner. We are also hoping that his dam is holding her pregnancy to CWL Woody which will bring similar genetics to the pairing, fingers crossed for an enjoyable summer of alpaca cria (babies).

Tango, our Supreme Champion
