Alpaca Socks Seconds
Sorry, this blog was posted in June 2015 and we have sold out of seconds now. We do not have a lot seconds normally but we have just had a bumper load of mid blue small and large walking socks. There is a knitting fault which has made the appearance of them not look as good as they should do but that does not affect their wearing properties. For some of you who have never tried alpaca socks before these are an inexpensive way of giving them a good gear testing - you will then be more than willing to pay full price once you realise not only are our socks unbelievably soft and comfortable but they are incredibly hard wearing for a luxury fibre.
An update of our lovely foal by Amazing Jigsaw out of our lovely TB mare by Lyphento. She is doing very well, almost too well and bringing Mum down a bit in condition. You have to be so very careful feeding lactating mares; enough nutrients to keep mare and foal well but not so much that the foal grows too rapidly. A well respected equine vet told me 20 years ago that yearlings should be skinny and you should be able to see every single rib and that there are a multitude of problems with being overweight and very few with being underweight.
