About Alpacas

Alpacas

Alpacas originate from South America, the Altiplano, high up in the Andes. Closely related to to Llamas, although much cuter!

They have been domesticated for over 6000 years, so there are no ‘wild’ alpacas out there, they all belong to someone. Bred primarily for their beautifully soft fleece, often referred to as ‘fibre of the gods’ they are also very curious, gentle animals with individual faces and characteristics which give them a very infectious effect on anyone who meets them!!

Nowadays we have a thriving alpaca business using their fleece, sheared each year to make duvets and pillows, we breed champion alpacas, and sell these wonderful animals, there is something alpaca for everyone!!
