Winter is coming, and whilst we will miss the long summer nights and the sun upon our skin, there’s something quite comforting about the shorter days, frosty mornings, and spending hours on end in front of a warm fire.

We’ve had a very exciting few weeks here at South House Alpacas as every year we dedicate a number of days to shearing our herd of Alpacas, and this year’s Alpacas Shearing Days were 3 weeks ago starting on the 21st of June. Running up to the big day it was touch and go…

Sustainable Alpaca Fleece – the perfect solution for a luxurious night’s sleep. In an ever-changing world and with climate change at the forefront of many people’s minds, sustainable living is more desired now than it has ever been…

With the sun shining, long days and light evenings, nothing quite beats the summer. Day trips to the beach and warm weather make it the perfect time of the year after what always seems like a very long and miserable winter. But whilst us brits love the sun…
