Andersons Alpacas of Virginia is a family-owned enterprise that markets alpaca products and alpacas for breeding. We enjoy these friendly, gentle animals who produce the most beautiful and desirable fleece under the sun. Frequently compared to cashmere, the unique qualities of alpaca fleece place it in a class of its own. Warmer and stronger than wool, alpaca fiber is hollow, making it very light with remarkable insulating and wicking qualities.
We send our fleece to the Alpaca Fiber Cooperative as well as to a local mill. We have high quality goods made with luxurious alpaca fleece: socks, gloves, fingerless gloves, mittens, scarves, hats, weed-blocking garden cloth, trivets, and a beautiful laundry basket. We also have yarns in natural colors as well as naturally hand-dyed yarn. We use other fibers for making hand-sewn items such as purses and table runners for Halloween, Fall, and Christmas!
Andersons Alpacas raise their alpacas on a farm in Goochland. Bob grew up in Amelia and majored in Animal Husbandry at Penn State. Maureen is a quilter, crocheter, and a new knitter who is quite pleased to be expanding her fiber art skills. Andersons Alpacas is a member of AOBA, ARI, and VAOBA.
