Color #4 NAMED: Purple Rain, Purple Rain

Isn't this one just perfectly purple? Hey wait, maybe that would be a good colorway name! Just kidding -- I'm not going to take away your fun. Same rules as listed below -- I trust you guys to have read them at this point, so I'm not going to bore you with them again. Go forth and have fun!

Oh, I almost forgot to tell you! Winners for colorways 3 & 4 will be announced on Thursday, December 11th, so you have until then to get those great suggestions posted.

Winners for colorways 1 & 2 will be announced later today, I promise! (really, you can't imagine how hard it is to get those alpacas to agree on anything!)

I'll be back soon with the news you been waiting for, until then, have fun naming!
