Uniform Fineness-Pass it on!
Querencia refers to a favorite place to relax and enjoy life, and we, Marie and Dennis Hurley have found our perfect niche raising alpaca. We use our consistently fine Alpaca fiber to create a myriad of beautiful, luxurious items from hand knit sweaters and scarves, hand woven jackets, blankets, shawls, rugs, to felted stoles, soaps and dryer balls. Even alpaca the waste is used to grow a bountiful garden. Our alpaca keep the pastures trim and they entertain us with their delightful antics.
As a CPA and tax lawyer, Dennis appreciates the value of our herd as a source of potential revenue, from selling pets and breeding stock, raw fleece, and hand made fiber creations, to herd sire services, as well as their investment potential. As our herd improves due to the influence of our own males, it also benefits by the availability of some of the top machos in the U.S. Just check out our Bogart, Rico Suave, El Trauco and Tequila Sunrise cria, while you are admiring the handiwork of Aaron and Limoncello who mark their cria with lovely handle through lowered C of V, improved fineness and marked crimp style.
While the show/investment model of alpaca ranching is evolving into a fiber based industry we are moving ahead of the current, with a herd chosen for solid conformation and good quality long-lasting fineness, and our herdsires are selected to maintain while improving it. The animals we sell as pets have almost all won ribbons at show or for fiber, and as fiber producers they will earn their keep for years to come.
We currently are offering for sale Reine of Violettes, a lively blue black 3 year old Dom Lucilio granddaughter bred to our elite fibered herdsire, Abrazo Royale for a spring 2016 cria. With classic beauty, great bloodlines and soft dense longlastingly fine fleece, Now is the time to build your dream. Invest in the future of fineness. Come home to warm fuzzies and Unwind with Alpaca!
We welcome inquiries and we service what we sell. All our unbred females are sold with a breeding to a Querencia herdsire of buyer's choice.
Elite Fiber-Pass It On!
Black Sheep Gathering was lots of fun for the alpacas at Querencia this year.
Accoyo America Masai took first place in his 2 year and older class at age 5, his soft handle being the deciding factor. His first cria are due in August, so excited to see them-will he throw color? Snowmass Zero was second in same class.
In the white juvenile class, Nautilus daughter Celeste Clair was first, Lily was 2nd and Kashmir's Prisma 3rd.
Juvenile dark saw Xochitlpelli daughters Quetzal at 1st with sister Chula 2nd.
Last but not least, Desire's daughter Sophia won 1st 2 year and older and won the Brightest of Show award.
Royale's son Transcendent went to a new home, congratulations to new owners Diane and Steve Wright of Wandering Pines!
