Hand-spinners, knitters, & other fiber artists will find fleece and yarn. Many of the yarns are in one of the alpacas’ natural colors, spun from the fleece of a single animal. Bring your camera and get a shot of the alpaca who provided the raw material for your next project. Visitors can chat with four long-time livestock breeders who've raised llamas, horses, sheep, and goats.
