Do you ever think about where the wool in your favorite sweater or coat came from? It might have started on the back of an adorable alpaca. Check out Donna Trunk's alpaca named Fitzroy at her Shoreham home. She's a fiber artist and uses a spinning wheel to turn alpaca hair into wool for a variety of different items.
