    Alpaca Facts

    The alpaca are from the camelid family.  They are indigenous to the Peruvian Andean mountains.  There are two different types of alpaca, suri and huacaya.  Suri alpaca has fiber that is long, shiny and silky.  The fiber grows downwards in long curly locks. Huacaya alpaca has fiber that grows out like a teddy bear.


    Alpaca are smaller than llamas, and unlike llamas, they are not bred to be beasts of burden, but 

    were bred specifically for their fiber.  Alpaca fiber is used for making knitted and woven items.  These items include blankets, sweaters, hats, gloves, socks, scarves, coats and bedding.  


    Yes, alpacas do spit! It is usually at other alpaca,  although they do occasionally spit on humans.  Spit usually contains air and a little saliva, although alpacas commonly bring up stomach contents and project it onto their chosen target.


    Alpaca use a communal dung pile.  Generally, males have much tidier, and fewer dung piles than females.  


    Alpaca are ruminants, they have a three-chambered stomach.  The food is softened in the first chamber, mostly through bacterial actions, then it is regurgitated and is now known as cud.  The alpaca will chew the cud to further break it down.  Hence stimulating digestion.

    We started this journey in Jim Thorpe, PA in 2009 following several family losses.  These losses taught us that life is too short and it is important to pursue our dreams.  After 6 years we decided to move south to Rockwell,  North Carolina. 

    We love the alpaca lifestyle and are committed to raising high quality, Suri Alpacas.
