Silver Cloud Alpacas

27 May

Yesterday was a glorious day to visit Nancy at Silver Cloud Alpacas in Elginburg, just north of Kingston, Ontario. Nancy and her husband Paul have a herd of 67 alpacas and she is very well-versed in all things alpaca. IMAG1630
Nancy knows her stuff! I learned that she confidently uses her years of experience to assess the quality of each animal’s fleece, by hand, before choosing the softest fibre to create her beautiful hand-dyed yarns. In most cases, she’ll even provide a photo of the animal who provided the very yarn you buy!
