Adorable Fabric Alert

If you're a long-time reader, you know that I have a deep and abiding affection for alpacas. As I've mentioned before, I can't tell you where it came from since I've been around alpacas once in my life, and that was only after I'd decided that I loved them. But love them I do.

So when I saw this new design by Laurie Wisbrun, I was instantly smitten. Of course, her design is of llamas, not alpacas. I think alpacas are a little less known and less appreciated than llamas even though, in my humble opinion, alpacas are the cuter and friendlier of the two. I'm constantly having to explain to people that I adore alpacas, not llamas. Spitting gets you nowhere, guys.

From Aragon Alpacas
I prefer gentle and timid with soft, luxurious fleece to brave and heavy enough to crush me. Oooh, and tricks. My alpacas are definitely going to do tricks. 

But since I haven't seen an adorable alpaca fabric like this, llamas will have to do. You can bet I'll be grabbing some to make myself something special. And I hope no one will mind if I call them alpacas.
