Champions producing Champions!!

Big Timber Alpacas resides among the tall firs on Parrett Mountain near Sherwood, Oregon, about 25 miles southwest of Portland. Our breeding program focuses on proven elite white and color genetics to produce champion alpaca seed stock bloodlines.

Our mission is to produce the highest quality alpaca seed stock: conformationally correct and healthy; uniform, dense and finely fibered, good natured alpacas. Our stud females are easy birthers with great mothering skills and our stud males are strong framed and easy to handle.

Our focused breeding program continues to produce the highest quality seed stock Suri and Huacaya alpacas measured by science and showring.

We are proud that 100% of our white foundation herd have Top 1%- 5% rankings in the 2019 EPDs. In addition, almost 80% of our color herd including blacks and browns have at least Top 25% 2019 EPD rankings.

We believe in using state of the art quantitative data tools, such as histograms, EPDs and skin biopsies, to measure the success of our breeding program and improve our seed stock with every generation. We shear all of our alpacas every year, including suri juveniles, to accurately assess annual fiber trait progress and to utilize the fiber in our end market products.

We utilize the Suri Network S.H.I.P program to independently evaluate our Suri alpacas by outside experts. We measure fineness and uniformity annually on every animal in our herd. Data driven breeding decisions ensure quality results and drive our breeding program advancements.

Big Timber’s seed stock alpacas compete in the top national shows winning championships and judges choice awards as well as "Advanced Fleece" awards.
We are honored to be the recipient of the prestigious 2019 AOA Heirloom Breeder Cup, the 2019 Suri Network Diamond Breeder Cup Awards and the 2018 Futurity Reserve Suri Breeder of the year.

We have a wide array of home grown alpaca fiber and fiber products for sale including 100% alpaca yarns, rug yarns, roving and raw fiber. Our online store, Big Timber Weaving Studio, exclusively offers our Suri and Huacaya alpaca fiber products that are made in Oregon.

We also sell alpaca products made by others including wonderfully soft alpaca blankets, rugs, scarves, hats, gloves and toys. We sell these products at numerous fiber festivals throughout the year. Big Timber is a juried vendor selling at the annual Red Sled Market store in Sherwood OR open from October to Christmas every year.

Sue is an active volunteer who has served the alpaca industry as President of the Suri Network, President of the Alpaca Association of Western Oregon (AAWO) and served on numerous national industry committees. In addition, Big Timber Alpacas is a member of the Alpaca Owners Association, Suri Network, CABA, AAWO, AAWW, Calpaca and the Sherwood OR Chamber of Commerce. We are committed to work towards the advancement of the entire alpaca industry.
