Quality, Excellence, and a Passion for Alpaca

Nestled peacefully in McLeod county west of Minneapolis graze the Little Sisters and Brothers of The Abbey. With quiet enthusiasm we are dedicated to breeding and raising quality “Huacaya” alpacas.

At The Abbey, we pride ourselves in providing the very best quality alpacas to our customers. We constantly strive for excellence in the following areas: overall quality, excellent conformation, dense fiber, incredible crimp, full coverage, and friendly personalities. Our desire is to provide you with experienced personal service, committed support, and a vow to share our knowledge and success with those who choose the rewards of raising these heavenly animals.

We are registered members of Alpaca Owners Association, Inc (AOA) and our alpacas are registered with the Alpaca Registry, Inc. (ARI).

In addition to promoting this wonderful animal we sell many alpaca products from yarn to finished scarves, hats, mittens, socks, and more. Many of our products are hand knitted or crocheted with yarn made from the fleeces of our alpacas right here in Minnesota. Please visit our store page to view all of our products.
