New Addition to the Herd
Our newest baby arrived on August 26th a few days shy of his actual projected birth date.
Our girl, Satin, gave birth to a 9.8 pound baby boy named Franklin. We call him Frankie for short. Although this little guy was small at birth, he has but on quite a bit of weight since his birth. He weighed in at 13.8 pounds at ten days old.
Frankie has the most unbelievable curl to his dense fleece. He is soft and yummy to the touch and I look forward to adding his clip to next year’s yarn harvest. We are building quite a nice herd of white and beige alpacas to provide luscious fiber to send to the mill to process into our own farm yarn which we offer for sale in the shop and at fiber fairs.
