National Alpaca Farm Days September 24-25, 2011

Lavender Hill Farm participated in it's second National Alpaca Farm Days in 2011.  It was a perfect weekend for visitors from all over to come learn about the alpacas.  Inside the shop, you could find alpaca apparel and products, information on alpacas, refreshments and a table where children could color alpaca pictures.  It was a great weekend meeting so many people interested in alpacas! 
Champ looks so happy to see another visitor!

Acura's blanket was laid out along with photos of what she looked like before and after shearing.  There's quite a difference! 

Hats, gloves and scarves were available to purchase.

As were comfy alpaca socks, bears and alpaca dolls.

This shelf holds roving and yarn from Lavender Hill Farm's alpacas. 

A loom was set up with a scarf being weaved on it made from alpaca/silk.

The alpacas were tired after a busy weekend with lots of visitors!

Champ is always a favorite of people who visit Lavender Hill Farm.
