Katie from Make It. Grow It has read a lot about alpacas and put that knowledge to practical use with her herd of about 10 alpacas. The main reason she has alpacas is because she is a fiber artist and grows her own good quality fleece for yarn that she knits with and sells on HandsomeFibers.com.

Listen as Katie talks about the alpacas’ funny behaviors like washing their legs and spitting; how they built their herd faster by buying alpacas that were already bred and what happened to the babies; and how easy it is to fence the alpacas, but hard to keep their fleece clean.
If you are interested in fiber animals we have another podcast about sheep and goats as fiber animals.
