Alpacas are a small, South American camelid. Smaller than their cousins, llamas, their fiber is softer and more dense. Alpaca fiber is hypoallergenic, anti-microbial, and extremely insulating. Alpacas are soft-footed with toes with nails instead of hooves, creating minimal impact on soil. They also have a unique trait of sharing communal dung-piles which makes manure collection simple.
Our alpacas are shorn once a year producing around 8lbs of usable fiber each time. This super-fine fiber is the basis for many of our hats, scarves, and other items sold in our farm store.
