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. :heart:

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?


:waving: me too!

:cheering: hi to you! =P

:waving: me, too :wink:

How about some Canuck comrades? :wink:

I :heart: you!! :wink:

Seriously, that’s way freakin’ cool. Congrats on your new family members!

How exciting for you!! I know nothing of what it takes to care for them but I’m sure it will all be worth it when you get to knit, knit, knit!! :XX: :XX: Enjoy them. I’d love to pet them too!! :smiley:

How cool is that. I have a friend that went into alpacas in Virginia too! They are so soft. That yarn will be so much fun! Be sure to take some pics of things you knitt with it. I’d love to see it!


Might you have a bit of room left for another new best friend?


ooo. ooo pick me!!! pick me!!! :waving:

Hello friend!

What color will your little furkids be? Are they babies?


How cool! As :notworthy: if you don’t have enough offers already…I’ll be a best friend!!!

Have I told you lately how awesome you are? :wink:

Alpacas- what fun!!! Please post picture of them when you can!!!

Hee! You guys are too much.

My sister’s friend is getting somewhere upwards of 20, I believe. Her family will care for them and do all the hard work. I just get to send them care packages and visit them and then knit my crazy fool head off with the yummy yummy yarn they produce.

I think we’re getting white. Lovely, completely dyable white.
I don’t think they’re babies though. If they were, I’d have to lure them into my car and bring them home because BABY ALPACAS AAAHHHHHHH.

I can’t wait to go meet them.

Hi if you need another best friend I come with great references!! :lol:

That is totally my dream! I already live in Virginia, I just need to get a farm. I was at an exhibit once where a woman was spinning her alpacas’ fleece it was such yummy yarn. I am soo jealous!


i am planning to get alpacas and jacob sheep when i move. i simply don’t have the land where i am at the moment. thats amazing to be able to do it yourself. totaly self sufficiant. thats my dream for life in general not just knitting. here in france its quite possible.


Here’s a baby to hold you over! :wink:
