Join us as Alpaca Country Estates visits Faith, Hope & Charity Vineyards for our second Alpaca Your Wine event! Meet the alpaca crias face-to-face and feel their soft luxurious fleece. We will be bringing select items from our boutique which is stocked with beautiful alpaca apparel, cozy alpaca hats and gloves, rugs made from our alpaca fiber, cuddly alpaca teddy bears, and other distinctive gifts. Alpaca products that are softer, warmer, and hypoallergenic for comfort beyond compare. Alpacas are green from the field to fashionable fleece; which means they are an environmentally friendly livestock, gentle on the land and produce and eco-friendly fleece that more and more fashion designers want to use. We will also be bringing our newly published children's alpaca book "Baby Alpaca's Adventure." An adorable book conceived and written while, visiting Alpaca Country Estates pastures. (A baby alpaca wanders away from the nursery to explore the ranch and search for his true purpose. During his grand adventure he discovers a nose-kissing alpaca, a friendly hen, and a spunky one-eared mouse. His new friends teach him all about alpacas and ranch life in Oregon, and help him find his way back home to his mama.)
