A NOTE FROM THE RESEARCH DEPARTMENT

Alpaca Doona would be a good name for a rock band.

I always found these silly, but since i had the opportunity...

FIRST

Natural Fire Resistance

So, if it's a chemical fire or a fire with, you know, additives or preservatives in it, you're toast?

First what, Fred?

The picture's caption says "100% organic Alpaca fibre". As opposed to that third-rate synthetic alpaca fibre that Bed Bath & Beyond tries to pawn off on us all the time.

I wonder if alpaca is hypoallergenic? If not, I'm sure I could substitute some organic Kentucky squirrel fibre...

Why would somebody name their rock band after a fibre, or is Alpaca Doona a fruit?

The link does not work for me for some reason.

I think a good name for a band would be "Nut House", ask Lairbo.

Stinky - it's hypoallergenic for alpacas.

Judi, I have my own Alpaca that is a house Alpaca that sleeps on the furniture and I take for walks. I also regularly shear his doona. So thanks, but we have plenty of doona already. So you doona need to worry about us. But if you're hungry, Alpaca you a lunch.

Geez..

Dust Mite Free is indeed an important quality to consider for the discriminating buyer of bedding accessories.

Absorbs moisture? That's good?

Great - so no more changing the bedding.

Anyways, my man-pillow is allergic to alpaca.

So Alpaca is not a fruit, Dave?

I never seen a live fibre before!

I'll-pack-an accessory
A sweater without allergy
So warm and light
And yet with no mites
It llooks llike a llama to me.

*Stinky - it's hypoallergenic for alpacas*

I know it's strange, but I am allergic to someone making a doona out of MY fibers.

llilly -

Until you've had your fibers doonad you'll never do well on the kink test.

I can live with that.

sllowllayne-

brilliant llimerick! as usual.

Nope. "Hog the Alpaca" just doesn't sound as good as "Hog the doona".

Where I live, there is an alpaca ranch about 30 minutes away. My children's home-school group went on a tour of it as a field trip, and I tagged along. Pretty interesting. I learned a couple of things from the trip.

-First, that the correct pronounciation for the word Llama is actually "yama".

-Second, alpacas are just as snooty as llamas.

I tried to make a joke out of the llama "yama" pronounciation issue, but the ranch guide with us didn't find it too funny. Niether did the alpacas or the llamas...

"Ready for insertion"


Funny how things sound different when taken out of context...

Behold, there IS a rock band called "Alpacas" !!!

and here it is!!!

Dave...learn how to do a link :(

Can you get them in an sixpaca?

Ok-
I let it go yesterday when Dave asked… Question: "Hog the doona?", but after the today’s entry I have to ask... What is a "doona", and why haven’t I heard of it/them before?

There is a farm that I pass every day on my way to work, at first glance I thought they were llamas, but it turned out to be a good old fashioned alpaca farm.

Actually Schadeboy, it's only pronounced "yama" when you're speaking Spanish :-)

99.99999% English speakers pronounce it "lama". Which is also the inclusive designation for llamas and alpacas collectively.

No matter how you pr. it... they're pretty awesome animals when you get to know them. They're not all snooty. Honest.

Hey,
I found some great alpaca yarn from www.elderberrycreekalpacas.com and made a wonderfully soft and warm sweater. Elderberrycreekalpacas recommended that I use wooden needles because the alpaca fiber is so smooth and does not have the barbs that sheep wool has. Elderberrycreekalpacas also has finished sweaters, but I would rather make my own.
