Alpacas

So, on my way out of town tonight (visiting my hometown and returning to new home) I saw a sunflower sign that advertised "Retirement sale - Alpacas, Fiber, Yarn" and so I couldn't help but turn in to the driveway.

They had yarn, fleece and animals for sale.  I was able to buy two skeins of 100% black Suri alpaca wool and 2 1/2 pounds of fleece.

They showed me their $38,000 scarf - the most expensive scarf in the world - knitted from their first year's shearing...

LOL.  Sorry to hear it, but weren't alpacas a get-rich-quick scheme a few years ago?
