We've had some chat on my Rav group about new blends of yarn. This is all based on a strangely worded sign, but you know, that's often how ideas happen. There is a sequence of events and when the sequencing ceases, things are different. Think about dog breeds for a moment. Consider the Schnoodle. There you have it.
First on the agenda: a blend of Merino and Alpaca. Say there had been Something Funny Going On out at the farm. Somewhere there are now some little Merpacas or Paca-rinos running around, bleating and spitting and generally looking absolutely adorable.
(How do you know who should get top billing in breed crosses??? Naughty Aplaca + Fence-Jumping Merinos = ??? I like Merpacas, personally.) (Can these animals actually cross polinate? Not sure I want to know.)
If you combined cattle with Cashmere, you'd have a Cashcow. The male offspring of a llama and a sheep would be a Ramallama. A Corridale sheep plus a llama would be a dale-llama (Don't say 'dale,' as in Chip 'n Dale. Say Dah-le. Now say llama. If you aren't getting it, you must go meditate. Preferably in Tibet. Get it now?)
Como se llama is one of a handful of things I know how to say in Spanish. Means, how is your llama?
Angorafobia is the fear of rabbit fur.
