Alpaca Socks

Winter is not my favorite season, so every year I need something to get me through the cold months.  Last year it was my electric blanket, and this year my favorite comfort is my warm and cozy Alpaca socks purchased from North Light Fibers on Block Island.  The mill is in the middle of Abrams Farm which among other animals is the home to eight beautiful alpacas.  We visit the farm often when on the island, and I’ve photographed several of these adorable animals.  For Christmas I purchased alpaca socks for my family and I like to think they came from this sheared alpaca.  This 5x7 oil painting on Gessobord is available in my Esty Shop.
