Have too many deadlines on articles and essays, so this may be my one and only post for this month. I figured I might as well dedicate it to the alpaca - the animal which Treehugger refers to as "the green sheep". I've been seeing a lot of this crazy little creature lately: on set in the south (seen here); the WTO in Hong Kong; the Ethical Fashion Show in Paris, and pretty soon at the National Alpaca Conference in Reno this November.

Though I have to be on the runway doing it up alpaca-style, I'll also be on the lookout for the finest alpaca fiber for a new "green" lingerie collection. Stay tuned for the details down the road.

If you want to join me, the event is free and open to the public.

Where: Grand Sierra Resort and Casino (Reno, NV)

When: (Shopping and workshops) November 3-5 starting 8AM - 5PM. (Fashion Show) Saturday, November 4 from 3:00 p.m. – 5:00 p.m.

Who: Sponsored by the Alpaca Owners and Breeders Association (AOBA) and Alpaca Registry, Inc. (ARI)
