Llama, Llama

Alpacas actually, a smaller relative of the llama.  Alpacas are valued for their fleece, which is softer and warmer than sheep's wool. It's also hypo-allergenic (no itching!).

This weekend, 28 & 29 September, alpaca farms all across America welcome visitors of all ages to meet the alpacas. National Alpaca Farm Days makes for a great autumn family outing.
