I stumbled upon an alpaca farm yesterday. I was expecting a few animals, but there were over 40 of them!

They tend to move as a group, like sheep, which is a little unnerving when you’re in their path. They’re quite curious and come right up to see you!

*********I was surprised by how affectionate alpacas are. They like to cuddle, so it’s no problem to feel their thick, fluffy fleece.

This particular farm, at the tip of an island in the Detroit River, has a gift shop. They carry items from felt and yard made from the animals on the farm, as well as imported hide items. I couldn’t resist getting a couple skeins of the yarn.
