One day driving around some neighborhoods in Half Moon Bay, I came across this Alpaca farm (they look like Llamas but they are actually Alpacas).

It's stylish, Stitchbabe!:GThey use them for their hair, which is warm and water resistant.

Yep, they're alpacas. You can tell by the clump of hair on their heads.

Have you ever heard of Alpaca sweaters? This is where the wool comes from.

Yes, andthey're very expensive as well. We can't find them in CA (not cold enough).

An interesting bit of info Tullio & Cal! I've never really paid attention to the name tags on sweaters but I'll be sure to keep an eye open for Alpaca sweaters and such now...no doubt there are some here in Canada! :G

It seems your good old Kodak have fullfilled the job here, Tullio, doing justice to the curious subject.I'm afraid I'll not be able to provide one that interesting:-).

Btw, I must also admit here that brother Cal often amaze me with his extensive experience, bringing a brief explanation for almost any sight we see.

Yes, good comment, bahadir,

I also agree it's great to have Cal around with his experience and concise ways of explaining things. Thanks a million!

PS nice photo of interesting animals. I've only ever seen llamas in real life... maybe one time it's cousin the alpaca...
