Back in August I attended the Bakewell County Show. Fantastic sunshine but lots of mud underfoot after several weeks of rain. I knew from previous years that although there were sheep involved there was no fibre for sale. Imagine my delight when I spied a stand from Toft Alpaca!  I’d been coveting their giant bulb bag for weeks but couldn’t quite stretch to that after all the treats my son had had during the day so I settled for one of the smaller kits. I finally made it up this week after the cold snap started – and they have been worn several times.
