Lonesome Stone

Above is Linda of Lonesome Stone. We had a great time there. Lonesome Stone is a fiber mill and alpaca farm. Linda took us down to the pasture to meet all the girls. They were wonderful! The MK's got to give them treats and pet their soft necks. Linda told us all about her animals and their fiber. She breads for the fleeces and let me tell you they are gorgeous! MG wanted to bring one home, so did I. Linda also showed us the whole operation from fleece to finished yarn. There is yarn and fiber all over the place. They also have a shop there with all natural yarns from the farm as well as for clients all over the place. I bought 400 yards of a creamy dk weight alpaca. I met the animal the fleece came from. His name is Dutch and his fleece gave 35 skeins of yarn (200 yards) I also picked up one skein of a dark brown color.
This little baby is only a few days old. I love the color! She loves her Momma. There were lots of babies in all kinds of colors. The babies are a little shy but very cute to watch.
Momma and baby are not the same color. This one tried to nibble a little too much. MG is asking her not to bite fingers.
MB made friends right away. He loves animals.
Oh and this is me on the shore of Lake Granby. Ms. B had remarked that she had no real idea of what I look like so here I am. Hubby took this as I watched my son run along the waters edge. Not the best but what ya gonna do?

I would recomend if you are ever up in the Rockies go visit Linda and the gang at Lonesome Stone. You will never forget it.

I hope you don't mind that the photo of the mamma and baby is now our desktop background at work! :-)
And every time we walk by it, we stop and say, "awwwwwwwwwwww!".
