Alpaca Market at Helderstroom Alpacas, Villiersdorp

We enjoyed a lovely morning with Chris and Alison and their Helderstroom Alpacas. The market was very well attended despite some dark clouds and a whiff of rain. The temperature started to remind everyone of the arrival of winter, just the right time to buy some soft, warm and precious Alpaca shawls, jerseys, gloves and baby boeties. We were spoilt with lovely cakes, coffees and pizza. There was musical entertainment, fresh farm produce for sale and a wonderful garden with lots of chairs and loungers to rest and relax while watching alpacas. Chris gave some of his special English humour filled lectures on Salt and Pepper, their unique Alpaca twins. He brought charming little Pepper in to act as a show piece demonstration model, which she after some daring patience finally ended with an airy spit. The atmosphere in Helderstroom was relaxing and the setting is just spectacular. Thanks for being such wonderful hosts and representatives for our Alpaca Society !! kind regards Carmen SACOYO Alpacas
