Our second star prize is 2 alpaca fleeces from Animal Encounters.  Cookies and Cream have donated their fleeces so that one lucky person will be able to spin, weave or dye 100% alpaca fleece into something truly unique.

Animal Encounters are a community based project in Winson Green, Birmingham who work with local schools, churches and community projects to give inner city residents the chance to meet and learn about non domestic and exotic animals.

We are very excited that Cookies and Cream will be our special guests on Saturday 16th July at Yarningham, opening the festival.  They will then stay a while to be petted, brushed, feed and walked by you lovely lot.

Animal Encounters have also kindly agreed to donate 2 fleeces from Cookies and Cream for our Yarningham raffle.

The fleeces will be our star prize.  So to be in with a chance to win you will need to attend Yarningham and buy a raffle ticket. We’ll be announcing more raffle prizes from our exhibitors over the next couple of weeks.
