Amazing alpaca fleece. The water just sits in bubbles on top without soaking in. Not the best thing for making felt though! #alpaca #felt

Hmm. Not sure this is where the alpacas are meant to be. Fergus managed to escape into the road again with Clement and I drove up in the car just in time to help Mike herd them back into the garden! #alpacas #escape
