WELCOME to our world of alpacas. These enchanting creatures will steal your heart away with their expressive eyes and curious nature. Each alpaca has its own personality, and you will soon recognize each one. Mostly, alpacas are known world- wide for their soft and environmentally friendly fleece. Also, they are herd animals communicating in their special way to each other.
Why would you get alpacas? This is a personal choice and will depend on your needs and desires. Some of the reasons are listed here.
BREEDER—This is a popular reason for having alpacas. All alpacas are adorable but young cria (babies) are more adorable than you can imagine. It is so exciting when after waiting months you get the pleasure of a new cria. It is great fun watching the cria grow and develop. Nothing can be more entertaining than watching the young cria run and play. Oh, so cute!
PETS—These animals are very curious and tranquil. The time you spend with them each day will be relaxing and stress relieving. Alpacas are for the young at heart of all ages. Teach your children the responsibility of caring for these alpacas, and watch them grow with the satisfaction of a job well done. Alpacas are drawn to small children. Seniors are rewarded in a special way as they have more time to spend with these animals. Since alpacas are herd animals as mentioned earlier they thrive in a group. We recommend having at least three animals.
FIBER—If you are into fiber arts, these animals are for you. Maybe you enjoy the creative art of needle felting. Having your fleece made into yarn will be wonderful for all your knitting and crocheting projects. Perhaps you are a spinner and the idea of having your own fleece to spin is a dream come true.
