A Friendly Llama


It was a cloudy, cold, drizzly day in Lancaster, Texas and I was wearing a wimple knitted out of my handspun wool/alpaca/silk blend. The next thing I knew I was being snuzzled by this llama!

His owner asked me what kind of yarn the wimple was knitted with and I told her it had some alpaca in it. She said, "Oh! He smells a relative."

I have forgotten his name, but he was the sweetest, most gentle fellow and he walked all around me gently touching his muzzle to the wimple until he was standing facing me with a quizzical expression on his face.

You have not lived until you have been snuzzled by a llama, and a polite one at that!
