Reserve Suri Breeder of the Year
Foundation Herd
S.H.I.P Classified Suri Herd

Big Timber Alpacas, sits 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 best 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 with good personalities. We are proud that 100% of our white suri foundation herd are ranked in the top 1% or 5% of the 2018 EPDs.

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 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.

We have a wide array of alpaca fiber and fiber products for sale such as 100% alpaca sport weight yarn, rug yarns, roving and raw fiber. Our finished products include wonderfully soft alpaca blankets, rugs, scarves, hats, gloves and toys.
