My fiber farm is growing - we've added two alpaca fiber boys. They are named Poncho and Toby. They came from my friends Diane's alpaca farm, this is the link to her site: Rainbow Mountain Alpacas They are gorgeous boys! Poncho is a true black and Toby is a medium fawn. They are two years old - I've spun their fiber for the past two years - and when they came up for sale I had to have them - the fiber is just fabulous!! The black is very fine and soft - unusual for a black alpaca. Toby, the fawn has a great shine and nice crimp. I can walk them together on halters and they behave very well. The chickens threw them off a bit - they are free range chickens - something they'll have to learn to like I guess.
