The Sweetest Face

It was almost like a dream. In the center of Mandal, the town where I live, there were alpacas with their cute faces and the wonderful wool on their backs.

They were just standing there in a small alley by the pedestrian zone of the town. They are absolutely adorable and you just want to bring them home. Or not...

They were invited by a local yarn shop for people to see them.
They live on a local farm in Øyslebø where they provide their precious alpaca wool, and where they are sheared once a year. These three is a family with mother, father and a baby alpaca.

They are not happy about beeing touched, but I got a chance to feel the thickness and softnes of the wool. Oh, this visit made my day. And the thought of alpaca yarn is even more wonderful now. Like wearing my meadow scarf on a cold day.

In fact it´s always the little things that make us the most happy - isn´t that great??
