You may know them as gloves, scarves and sweaters, but what you may not know about alpacas, is that they are often confused with their cousin the llama; and sheared like sheep. They have a coat that is warmer than wool and less itchy, but that’s only the beginning of why alpacas have an advantage over other wool-producing livestock. Jan Selken, with Deer Creek Alpacas, gives us a lesson in alpaca acumen and shows us the benefits of alpaca yarn.
If you’d like to see more of Deer Creek Alpacas yarns and knit products , you can find their website at deercreekalpacas.com.
You’ll also find the Deer Creek Alpacas booth at the KELOLAND Living Arts and Crafts Show on Friday, March 27th and Saturday, March 28th at the Ramkota Exhibit Hall. If you’re a crafter or artist with a product to sell and would be interested in having a booth of your own at our event. Contact Michelle Ust at must@KELOLAND.com.
