About Our Store

Prairie Lake Alpacas promotes only American Made Alpaca Products!

Our commercially spun yarns are a blend of Suri, Huacaya and Merino wool, providing a versatile yarn with improved memory and reduced "shedding". These yarns are perfect for Sweaters, Hats, Scarves or Mittens and are available in 4oz hand dyed skeins. I have recently tried these yarns to knit, and then felt, hats and purses and am happy to report it felts beautifully!

As suri breeders we would be remiss if we did not offer 100% suri yarns. Due to the slippery nature of suri fiber, we have not been able to locate a large commercial mill in the US that will spin 100% suri yarn so we have to rely on smaller mini-mills for this product. Although we are currently sold out of 100% Suri, we have found a mini-mill that creates a beautiful 100% product, and we are anxiously awaiting the next batch of yarn. This yarn is lovely and shows off the natural luster inherent in Suri fiber. Check back soon for availability.

We will be continuing to add other yarns and finished products as they become available so check back often!
