There's an alpaca farm in St. Floridan, Alabama. Not only are alpacas raised, but the farm's owner has a line of clothing made from the alpaca wool, including beautiful sweaters and cardigans, hats, scarves, and blankets.

I emailed the owner, Erika, and asked if she ever sold any of the yarn she produces - she does! It's $75/lb wholesale and $6/oz. Hmmm...I would just love to be able to tell someone, "oh yes...this is my Alabama alpaca scarf!". So neat!!

I did not know there was an Alpaca farm within driving distance of us! How cool is this!! I would love to go and see the process of making yarn, etc. Let's talk about this next Chicks With Sticks and see if we can get a road trip one Saturday.....I have always wanted to see one of these farms and would LOVE to have some yarn that came from Alabama!!
