The Artists meet the Alpacas…

Rebecca brought two of her Fibershed artists…

…and the black felt jacket they made together…

…to meet the alpacas who grew the wool for the jacket…

…and the ranchers who raised the alpacas for the wool.

I am not sure who enjoyed the meeting more…

…the alpacas…

…or the artists.

But I think everyone, including the dogs, can agree that it was another super fun Fibershed adventure.

We learned, and saw, so much more than we ever thought we would…


…including all of Rebecca’s cute new leggings.

  1. All I want for Christmas is an alpaca!



  2. I like the doggy one and the clouds. The decaying foliage/fruit has beautiful colors. It would look great nicely framed on someone’s wall. That Alpaca trying to chew his way out of the wire fence just seems sad. I hope he makes it.


    1. Thanks Jabberwocky. I am glad you like the those ones… I like those ones the best too. But the Alpaca with the fence is deceiving you. He is actually basically sticking out his tongue at his two archenemies who are on the other side of the fence. He wants to bite through the fence and take them both on once and for all.


      1. Yeah, I see the anger in his eyes now. Makes sense.
