Many of our visitors confuse our llamas and our alpacas. Both are camelids, but if you take a closer look, you can tell the two species apart. Our very talented volunteer, illustrator Nicholas Carter has created this handy and beautiful guide to distinguishing between llamas and alpacas.
With temperatures rising, this Thursday was the day to fire up the clippers and give our flock their annual trim! Derek the shearer had quite a long list of customers, with our flock of sheep as our two alpacas and three lovely llamas. However, everyone is looking neat and tidy following shearing and they will certainly be feeling much cooler. Shearing has also produced lots of lovely wool and fibre. If you might be interested in any of our fleeces or fibre, please get in touch by email to firstname.lastname@example.org, come along to our monthly wool crafting group this Saturday (June 27th) and see our website.
