I ain't got no hair, part 2

Here are some more photographs from the National Alpaca show up in Denver.

Almost all the pens had huge fans running to cool off the hairy alpacas. I think they rather enjoyed the fresh air.
 I just love the coloring of this one. I wonder what it looked like with it's fleece.

Here is a cool poster of a suri alpaca. It was almost life sized.

This gentleman was kind enough to hold this rug up for my photograph. It's a piece of burlap with a silk scarve atop and the fleece is felted in to make the rug. To the right is the silk scarf before the felting is finished.

Here is a bag of fleece. It's so soft!
 Check out this hat made from felted alpaca. The card shows the alpaca it came from. Isn't it just so cool?

Here are more felt hats.
Now, this one truly looks like an alien, doesn't it?

lol! Who stole that Alpaca's ears?

I could totally see you wearing those lovely felt hats. They would look very stylish on you.

I'm glad you enjoyed yourself at the Alpaca show :)

They have got to be the oddest, weirdes, cutest animals I've ever seen. At first I thought the first picture was a stuffed animal.

Too cute, I wonder if the hats get wet they smell like wet alpaca? :-)
