Sisters of Providence Host Alpaca 101

They spent the day talking about the benefits of raising the animals, and all the different ways you can use their fur. Around a dozen people came out for the event, and those involved say it's important that everyone learn what a great resource alpacas can be.

Around a dozen people came out for the event, and those involved say it's important that everyone learn what a great resource alpacas can be.

"We teach a lot of the basics and they get an idea of what it takes to start it up and then what it takes to continue their farm. Then they can go on from here and decide if that's really what they want to do," said Tracy Wilson, alpaca herd manager.

And if raising alpacas isn't for you, the sisters will host a beginners felting course next Saturday from 1 to 5 p.m. at the White Violet Center.
