Admiring Alpacas at Ardingly!

Last weekend I set off for Ardingly Showground as a couple of other ladies from the Kent Guild had invited me to spin with them at the Alpaca and Llama Festival. This is the display Marian and Wendy had laid out when I arrived Saturday, the garments you can see are all Marian's and mostly from alpaca!


I slept just infront of the table where the spinning wheels are for the photograph.


The festival was on for 2 days and Alpaca Farmers came from all over to show their animals.


We were given alpaca to spin and although the weather was very windy on Sunday and we had a little rain on Monday, it was still an enjoyable time, demonstrating the art of spinning and chatting to people!

This sounds like it was so much fun! Alpacas seem to be such sweet, funny animals. And alpaca yarn is so lovely.

Are Alpacas as lovely as they look?

And did you get an alpaca blanket to sleep in?

Hi Caroline, yes Alpacas are just as lovely as they look, and someone told me they are easier to look after than a dog...they also like to be walked on a rein too.
