These little dears are adorable, Alpacas.  They can be found in South America, such countries as Chile, Peru and Bolivia.  Their wool is extremely durable and soft.

As a preteen I remember I had a beautiful alpaca wool coat.  It was green, with a Peter Pan collar, very large sixties buttons. pleats part way across the back, with a slung belt across the top of the pleats, secured by a large matching buttons on either side.  I loved that coat.

They did have some scarves for sale, $70.00, so soft.

The lady who owned them said that they are inexpensive to keep.  She can feed 12 on $2.50 per day, hay and I didn't ask what else they eat.

They make the most darling little baa type sound, not loud and not like a sheep.

We did enjoy touching and looking at them.

  1. When I looked at the photo first--I thought they were stuffed toys--rather large ones!
    How beautiful they are.
