We only breed black alpacas and as such this allows us to dedicate ourselves to producing the perfect black alpaca. Our selective breeding programme ensures that we are always striving to produce alpacas that are uniformly black, with dense fleece on a large well conformed frame and of course the finest, softest fleeces with stunning natural lustre. Sounds simple doesn’t it? Well, a lot science goes in to achieving these aims.
We assess all our alpacas against these criteria and benchmark our success at numerous shows throughout the year, but more importantly we get every fleece lab tested by Australian Alpaca Fibre Testing (AAFT), the leading fibre testers in the UK. This means we know the exact quality of the fleece on every animal. Between this and the overall assessment of the conformation of the alpaca and how much fibre it is producing we then select genetics for breeding each alpaca to retain and improve on these successful traits.
As a specialist breeder we usually have a small number of alpacas for sale as breeding females, stud males or pets and flock guards. However, if you can’t find what you are looking for or would just like to have a chat and discuss alpacas their husbandry, breeding and suitability for your needs then please do get in touch. There is no hard sell but be warned, if you meet our alpacas they are hard to resist!
