Although I never intended to raise Alpacas, sheep breeders, my shearer, and others often have tales of Alpacas that need new homes for a variety of reasons.  I have 5 Alpacas at present, some just have a good home, now, and provide their fleeces each year, which I blend into my custom yarns.

One male has repurposed himself to be a fierce guard for my fine fleece breeds, although he is a small guy. I do not breed my Alpacas, but their fleece makes a valuable addition to our fiber palatte.
