Hilary, of course, is the backbone of the operation doing all the work while Jay gets to "play".

Having spent many years as a PA to the chair of an international engineering company, Hilary brings some much needed organisation and skills to the alpaca business.

Hilary's interest lies in the crafting side of alpacas having learnt to shear, skirt, card and spin their fleece as well as rediscovering needle felting, knitting and crochet she is able to see the whole process through.

On top of that Hilary is also very involved in the day to day care of the alpacas and really enjoys training the weanlings ready for the show season.
