Alpaca's rock!

I just met Mark from Moss Vale Alpacas and he is wonderful. I may have bought 2 skeins of 8ply black alpaca and 3 skeins of white (creamy white with little flecks) 5ply alpaca at the same time but that could just be a vicious rumour!

He gave me some photos to bring along on Monday night to show the latest additions to the herd. He also said that they are moving to Tasmania :( They are still going to bread alpaca's there and continue selling the fleece and roving off the site, mossvalealpacas (dot) com (dot) au. He said they have about 7kg of roving in black, white and a pretty reddish brown colour that is all carded and ready to spin.

I will bring my purchases along on Monday night for you to see/feel etc...

Oh and Mark suggested we could take a field trip to the Gidgigannup show on 27 October. He said last year there was roving, yarn and livestock on display and some for sale also. Just a thought.
