We've Named Our Little Black Alpaca

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!

Does anyone have any experience knitting or crocheting alpaca wool into pants/shorts/skirts/soakers to wear over cloth diapers? Since alpaca does not have any lanolin, can you add it like you would sheep wool or llama wool? Thank you for any help and info you can give me. =)
