I'm getting Alpacas, who wants to be my best friend?
Ok, so my sister has a friend in Virginia who lives on a farm. They have multiple adopted and biological children, totalling somewhere around 14 I think. Nuts, I tell you, nuts.

Anyway, They are all very crafty, in that they weave, knit, crochet, spin , etc etc etc.

She was talking to her friend today and she's getting some alpaca for her farm. My sister and I are chipping in to purchase 3. 3 ALPACAS. I think I'll name them Hughie, Dewie, and Louie.

Anywhoo, the fleece, are alllll mine. My sister doesn't knit.


Three alpaca fleeces for. well, forever. How long do Alpacas live anyway?

I want to get in the car right now and go visit them, and pet them and love them.

Who wants to be my best friend?
