With selective breeding and using top quality stud males, we are working toward our goal of breeding quality, ultrafine, dense, white and coloured huacaya alpacas.
We offer for sale superfine alpaca breeding stock, superfine fleeces for spinners, and our handmade alpaca products from our very own superfine fleeces.
We received a call from someone who was moving to a new property and could not take their alpaca. Paca was the alpaca we found, we estimated that he was about 3 years old and had probably never seen a set of shears. Following an emergency call to our shearer and four days later we had a very relieved and much cooler Paca, who has settled in well and runs with the boys on the farm.
Now it is time to sort out some beautiful fleeces, prepare some for sale and others for our own hand spinning. Some other fleeces will be given some further preparation and sent to a local processor to be turned into beautiful 100% alpaca yarn (just because we can’t hand spin enough, quick enough, to produce the alpaca products that we make). The short and hairy pieces will be sorted, packed into a bale and sold to our Australian carpet manufacturers who produce those beautiful alpaca carpets.
Shearing for 2016 is now finished! With rain predicted on shearing day the whole herd spent the night before in the shed, and with the prediction coming true the herd spent a second night in the shed. Some very happy skinny alpacas, were pleased to be out when the sun was up and the weather a little warmer.
