Eve with her llamas
Eve with her llamas

A Wonderful Story from Rare Yarns

December 2015
My friend Eve died recently. I met her at a fibre day over 20 years ago when she wanted to buy llamas or/and alpacas from me. I asked her if she was prepared to wait for a shipment that would be arriving within the year. Her reply -"No, I'm 60 and have not got the time to wait!"
Eve was a wonderful weaver and animal handler. She trained a llama to pull a cart and helped me train over 30 full grown adult llama males to walk on a halter - and this was after she had had her first heart attack. Now onto the next part of this story.
Just a few days after Eve's memorial I got a text from Jeanette who has some of our llamas at her property in Ruby Bay. She had never met Eve nor knew of her death. Her text read:
"Stella had her cria today. All fine. It is a girl, white with brown saddle. Her name is Eve. Beautiful day for it"
I wrote back and told her about Eve. Jeanette replied..
"That makes me feel really good. I had no idea of calling the cria Eve until I went and looked at her and the name just popped into my head. "
Strange but wonderful don't you think?
