We offer only products and animals that we are proud to carry our name.

We raise both Suri & Huacaya alpacas and although our passion is black and gray we have alpacas of all colors. Our goal is that with each generation we are improving in the traits we breed for, solid conformation, soft handling uniform fiber and lasting fineness.OUR SPINNERYWe started our spinnery January 1, 2010. It has been a whirlwind of learning adjusting and tweaking to get to a product that we are very proud to offer to our customers. We seek to do the very best with each fleece we process and it's individual requirements. We continually bring in outside experts in the field to sharpen and push us towards excellence.We are a 15 minute drive from the historical mining towns of Nevada City and Grass Valley, a hop skip and jump hour an 1/2 drive to the magical Lake Tahoe and close hour and 15 minutes drive from Sacramento International Airport. Let us help you plan a trip worth taking.We encourage you to make us a destination point. Tour our spinnery and then join us at the ranch to see our full time operation, beautiful herdsires, breeding stock and up coming show string.
