Yesterday I had visitors from Germany. They were long time friends of my cousins and touring with my brother who had taken them from Boston, to New York, Washington, DC and then to my farm before heading to Chicago and then Iowa. It turns out that they had visited Peru in the past, and had also taken in an alpaca farm while there. When I let them touch the fiber of one of my males(they were shorn three weeks ago, they could not believe how soft it was. The lady had purchased an alpaca shawl while on that farm, and she said it did not feel anywhere near as soft as the fiber I had shown her. Guess I am doing something right here. Now if the weather would stay nice for a couple of days, I will get started with skirting, washing and drying outside.
