Foothills Alpacas

Janet and I made our annual fall trek to Hood River to visit our friends Connie and Thomas Betts. It was a gorgeous day and we had fun petting and feeding the gentle alpacas and holding the two day old baby. Alpacas are curious and seem to be always smiling. Their wool is warmer and softer than sheep wool so I added to my collection of alpaca socks. Foothills yarn and fiber is a wonderful place to visit and their store (online and at the ranch) is a delight. There you can buy yarn of different colors and know the name of the alpaca who gave the wool, you might even be able to feed her some pellets and pet her soft head. Connie and Thomas are living the good life, that’s for sure!
