One new vendor from Shingletown this year was Enjoy by Bev. Bev Thacker and her husband raise llamas and alpacas. They shear their coats and spin the fiber into yarn. Bev uses the yarn to crochet and knit purses, hats, gloves, and scarves. With the money they make they can buy more food for the animals so that they can produce more fiber.

“We enjoy it!” Bev said.
