Quite often our local farmer's market has things other than just food. These two adorable alpacas were there this past weekend from Two Crow's Alpaca Farm. They live on this beautiful farm in the mountains of western North Carolina. Don’t you love their pretty old farmhouse?

According to Two Crow’s Alpaca Farm’s website, alpaca fleece is much lighter and warmer than sheep’s wool. Alpacas are sheared once a year and their fleece is turned into luxurious garments, such as the hats and socks shown on this cute teddy bear below at their booth at the market.
You can see that alpacas are small compared to most livestock breeds. Here one is standing next to the farmer.
