Here at Perilla we are getting very excited about our first crop of new potatoes. As with everything on the farm this year, these have come through a whole month later than what is considered normal for us on the Hereford/Worcester border.
At last the shearer came this week to shear our small flock, a month later than normal thanks to the abnormally cold Spring. So glad we only had 15 and not 215 to do in this heat, it was bad enough as it was. When Perilla alpaca socks took off six years ago I sold my beautiful flocks of Charollais and Suffolk ewes that I had bred for 25 years
This is our first post on our new blog at Perilla, which we hope you'll come back and visit regularly.
We'll be telling you all about our wonderful alpaca socks amongst other things, including why we use this exceptional luxuriously soft and hardwearing fibre - and why a pair of our socks will out last and out wear anything you can find elsewhere.
