West Michigan farm opening alpaca-themed store

– The owner of a West Michigan alpaca farm is opening up a store to sell items including socks made out of alpaca fleece and stuffed animals.

Jean McMurray, who operates the 25-acre Scenic Sky Alpaca Farm in Muskegon County, started out with four alpacas and now has a herd of 200. On Saturday, The Muskegon Chronicle reports the store's grand opening is planned in conjunction with National Alpaca Farm Days.

McMurray is passionate about alpacas. She traded her Corvette for one of her first alpacas and later named one of her animals "Mercedes," for a luxury car she could have bought instead.

The store at Scenic Sky Alpaca Farm, located near Muskegon, is scheduled to be open Wednesdays-Saturdays from noon to 5 p.m.
