Alpacas have a sweet, sensitive and reserved character while being curious by nature. They are completely harmless animals. They are gregarious, that is to say they like to live in a herd, and very rustic. They adapt well to our cold climate.
The alpaca fiber is warmer than sheep’s wool, about six times, and it does not contain lanolin. This fiber is hypoallergenic and can be worn by the most sensitive skin without causing any discomfort. The fiber is available in several shades that match the natural colors of alpaca and can range from white, beige, brown, black and gray. In fact, the fiber is classified according to 22 natural colors recognized by the various associations of alpaca breeders.
At the farm, we raise our alpacas with the aim of obtaining the best fiber quality possible. To achieve this, we believe that finesse and crimp are the essential characteristics to transmit and improve from generation to generation. We wish to eventually succeed in producing subjects with a fine fiber like cashmere and the crimp like merino wool.
