Hi Kids!

Hi Kids.  I'm Farmer Blue.  I'm here to help you learn more about alpacas.  So when you see me, look for cool information you can learn about why we raise alpacas, where they're from and what we can do with their fiber.

 

My wife, The Fashionable Mrs. Blue, does all of work with the fiber.  She makes cool things like spinning their fiber into yarn, weaving scarves and felting hats.

The Book

The Fashionable Mrs. Blue has a Plan and a Clue

When we moved to the farm, I became known as "Farmer Blue".  As you can see, I love to talk to my alpacas.  In the book, you will find out what I'm whispering to them.  HINT: It has something to do about her hat.

 

This is my wife, Mrs. Blue.  When she moved to the farm, she DID NOT want to be known as "Mrs. Farmer Blue".  No sirrreee.  And, she DID NOT want to wear blue jeans or overalls.  Personally, I like them, but she's too "fashionable" for that.  So we just call her "Mrs. Blue".  Until the end of the book, that is.  How do you suppose she received her new name, "The FASHIONABLE Mrs. Blue"?

 

In the beginning, I was worried that she wouldn't be happy moving away from her friends in the city.  Have you ever had to move away from your friends?  That's why I bought alpacas.  I thought they would keep her company.  Little did I know WHAT she would do with them!  You can't even imagine just how clever she became.  

 

She calls her ideas "clues".  I guess they really were clues, clues to make her happy and successful on the farm.  And she had a lot of them, believe me!  Kept me busy for sure.  But I was glad to help out.   

 

The alpacas were always curious about all of the activities that were going on.  Are you curious too? If you are, then I think you'll enjoy reading our book.  It's a little about life on the farm with the alpacas, and a lot about turning their fiber into things you can wear!  PS:  the word fiber is a term alpaca farmers use for fur, just in case you were wondering.

Activities:  Coloring Pages

You can print this picture then color it.  Alpacas come in 16 natural colors - white, beige, black, and 3 shades of fawn (tan) and brown from light to dark.  They also have 6 shades of grey, light to dark in both silver and rose grey.  The rose grey can look pink or lavender because it has shades of brown fiber mixed in with the grey fibers.  There is also a bay black - which is black and brown mixed.  

 

Some alpacas are solid.  Some have white on their faces.  Some even have spots or patches of a different color.  

 

Enjoy coloring your alpacas in Farmer Blue's pasture.

You can also print this picture as a coloring page.  It shows the cycle of the alpaca and how their fiber can be made into many different items from things to wear or to hang on your wall.

 

Just imagine what you could make from one of the softest, warmest and most lightweight fibers in the world!

Alpaca Facts:

Alpacas are normally 36" at their withers.  That's where their neck connects to their back.  How tall are you?  

 

Some alpacas have longer necks than others, but usually their neck is a foot, I mean 12".   :)

 

There's lots more info on the ALPACAS tab.  Happy reading!
