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.

This is my new favorite place to visit! Visit with the alpacas (caution, they're really shy) and learn all about how yarn goes from animal to skein. Amazing! You won't regret taking the short jaunt off the wine byway in Palisade
