Catton Hall

Our first craft fair with our 100% pure suri alpaca yarns and scarves.  A great success and lots of interest especially with the assistance of our three boys, Whistling Arabian Night, Sun Catcher and Dream Catcher.  Arabian Night was very impressed with his new surroundings.

 

Royal Three Counties Show

A great show with Suri Alpacas representing 25% of the total alpacas present.  The Suris generated lots of interest amongst the visitors who were also impressed by the quality, fineness and softness of our new 100% pure Suri Alpaca Yarn.

 

On the competition side Whistling Arabian Night was awarded Champion Brown Male whilst his younger sister Whistling Miss Feya was the Reserve Champion Brown Female.  As a pair they were also placed first in the Dam's Progeny class.  Their brother Whistling Sun Catcher was first in the intermediate light class whilst Whistling Moonbeam and Whistling Dream Catcher were both placed third.  A great set of results for our small and select herd of Suri Alpacas.
