Wyvern Vale Alpacas Logo

Based in the heart of the Dorset countryside we are a specialist breeders of black alpacas. Our prize winning herd is the result of our singular focus on black alpacas and constantly striving towards producing the softest and densest fleeces on large framed and well conformed animals.

As a smaller breeder our focus is on quality every time and our herd is a reflection of this. We’re intimately involved with the quality of our fleece as we use it to produce bespoke 100% alpaca suits so we need our alpacas to produce the finest quality fibre in the greatest quantity possible. This means we have to put our money where our mouth is when it comes to alpaca breeding and fibre production. Don’t just take our word for it though, come and see the herd at one of the many shows we attend every year or take a look at the alpacas we have available for sale.

Black Alpacas of Distinction

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!
