Fiber Fieldtrip!

Over the weekend i went to the Western Slope of Colorado and visited two fiber farms! One was Suris of the Western Slope in Ridgway - home to 85 Suri Alpacas and 1 Camel! It was baby season so there were lots of adorable and tiny baby alpacas and Cupcakes the camel was super sweet! Next we traveled to Norwood and Pinyon Pines farm to see a herd of Shetland sheep and more alpacas! Peg who owns Pinyon Pines handspins all of her fiber! It was amazing. There were, of course more babies, so we were able to cuddle with some 2 week old lambs! Cute!
