Today, I visited my friend, Laura Tepke, who owns a small Alpaca farm near where I live. I wanted to get a tan/fawn colored “blanket”. She didn’t disappoint. I also got a “rose” one from “Enya”. No kidding, it’s not white or brown. The shearer said it has something to do with blood supply moving into the fiber. I don’t think it’s bad for the Alpaca to do this, but it makes for an interesting color.
