Why Should I Go? Owners Warren and Barbara Nuessle live the “alpaca lifestyle,” a quiet, simple existence, raising these friendly, adorable animals, which have wonderfully thick coats in a spectrum of colors. The 10-acre farm is a great destination for a fun family visit. Children love the alpacas, who are as curious as they are cute. Come check out how the alpaca fiber is spun into yarn, then purchase a sweater, scarf, blanket or hat made from that yarn in their warm, inviting onsite store.
If you like to knit, you can choose from the varied selection of colors and weights and devise your own alpaca creation. As Barbara, a dedicated knitter, says, “Alpacas are literally sweaters on legs.” Don’t forget the socks! Warm, thick alpaca socks are just the thing to keep your tootsies warm in colder months. The farm is open Saturdays and Sundays year-round.
Insider Tip: If you want to get up close and personal with those snug sock providers, you can get to know the alpacas by name online at www.bayspringsalpacas.com.
