FAQ & Fun Facts

Alpaca are of the camelid family and are native to the mountainous regions of South America. They are the oldest domesticated animals in the Americas where they have been raised and bred for their fiber. The finest quality alpaca fiber has been found in ancient grave sites; even finer than we have today. This loss in quality is because the Spanish that invaded South America didn’t recognize the quality and benefits alpaca provide. They saw the alpaca as a threat to the sheep and decimated the herd.

We have a wonderfully diverse group of alpaca at our farm. The foundation herd are all full Peruvian that come from quality stock. We have a fiber herd that is more diverse but still has excellent fiber; which is used to make many wonderful products.
