Alpaca and llama themed gifts and home decor has been a popular trend for some time now and shows no sign of going away. It’s easy to see why – they’re really cute animals with loads of character, so they have huge appeal to adults and children alike.
More and more people are keeping these domesticated South American camelids on smallholdings. There are approx 4000 llamas in the UK, plus 40000 alpacas, often kept for their soft alpaca wool that comes in a wide range of colours. It’s been my secret desire for ages to have my own alpacas, but I don’t have the land or the money to keep them. Instead, I follow some alpaca groups on Facebook to learn what I can from people who live with them every day. Maybe one day…
Whenever I see alpacas and llamas at animal attractions or farms, I’m always attracted to those gorgeous faces, and their lovely tufted hairdos. I take loads of photos and I never tire of painting these adorable farm animals in my Surrey art studio.
