Alpacas!

We were visited by 3 young alpacas.

A huge thank you to Steve and Sally Baker from 'Stoke Wood Alpacas' for enthralling the residents and staff with these beautiful animals. We were visited by 3 young alpacas who were so friendly, allowing the residents to stroke them and they behaved so well in the house visiting residents in their own rooms. One even climbed the stairs for the first time to visit those upstairs!

They created many smiles and lots of conversation and questions. Their fleece is much softer than sheep fleece and doesn't itch when next to the skin. Steve and Sally brought some beautiful goods with them that had been made from their animals fleece and everyone commented on how silky and soft the 'bag of fleece' felt.

Steve and Sally kindly invited the residents to their farm to see the baby alpacas, so we're planning our trip over to Stoke St Mary very soon... we can't wait!
