Husbandry & Welfare
Alpacas need shelter from the elements, shearing annually in late spring or early summer, a low protein high mineral diet, toes trimming every couple of months and checking at least once a day. Alpacas are easy to halter train once weaned.
Fibre & Products
Alpacas were bred by the Inca’s of Peru for their wonderfully soft and warm fibre. This cashmere-like fleece was once reserved for Incan royalty and is now enjoyed by spinners and weavers everywhere.
If you are interested in buying alpacas as pets or indeed as a business, there are shows held UK wide to attend for the alpaca experience.
Alpaca trekking is great way to experience the outdoors, whilst also enjoying some chill time with these fantastic animals.
