We were given a full informational tour of the processing and history of Alpaca in the area by the owner. The owner did a nice job leading us around and we made some purchases in the little store.

I really enjoyed my visit here - thank you for the informative tour. I learned a lot about alpacas as an animal and as a type of yarn. Thank you for sharing your clearly evident passion about this with me.

If you want to see all that goes into making alpaca wool and its products, stop in here. These people are truly amazing and their animals, so sweet. And, the atmosphere of East Orchard Mesa, in Palisade, is idyllic.
