Lyme bay Alpaca farm had an open day yesterday and how could I possibly resist going along? For a small donation of three pounds I spent the afternoon sipping coffee, eating cake and, of course, hugging alpacas. Highlight of my week so far.
Some things that I are learnt on my day trip:
Alpacca wool comes in 22 natural colour shades.
Their gestation period is 11.5 months and they will not give birth on a rainy day.
Their wool contains no linolin (sic) and is, therefore, hypoalergenic.
Big up the alpaca crew.
