We’re just about packed up and ready to take the Arkadia Alpacas Roadshow to the Harvest Festival at Canons Ashby House this weekend.
As well as alpacas on display, there will be demonstrations of how we card and spin the alpaca fibre to make fine hand spun yarns.
More photos to come…
This is the first time we’ve combined an alpaca walk & workshop using alpaca fibre – along with a treasure hunt & magic stick workshop for the younger members of the group – and it was a great success!
Please watch our website for details of future workshops – or get in touch if you’d like us to organise a bespoke workshop especially for your group.
Alpaca walks available daily – message or call if you’d like to book…
Fantasia gave birth this morning to a lovely grey boy – Phineas Potts.
That’s two girls & two boys so far – three more crias expected…
Toft Talini just gave birth to our latest arrival – a little girl we’ve named Paloma’s Promise. Her colouring is quite unexpected, but very beautiful.
No, it’s not an alpaca after a growth spurt, it’s Spinach the llama at Catanger Llamas. He’s a very handsome chap & looking good at a record 21 years old
Our (nearly) matching pair of crias – Pinnacle Prince & Pinterry Princess, 4 & 7 days old now
She’s two days old now – very energetic & inquisitive
