Thanks so much to everyone who participated in the contest to name our alpaca. With over 200 names suggested we had quite a variety to make our final choice.  So... we have just finished a family gathering and unamimously decided... so now he has a name and it is Dante.  Thanks to Chase B. who posted the suggestion on June 22nd at 5:09 pm.  You've won a $25 Gift certificate to our online store Alpaca Direct   Thanks to everyone else for all the creativity and fun in helping our cute little alpaca have a nice name.  Next year you'll see if first year fleece be available as a buttery black alpaca yarn direct from our ranch!
