What Are Alpacas?
Alpacas were first bred by the Incas hundreds of years ago for their warm, soft fleece.
Even today they hold a special place in the lives of the people of the high Andes.
Alpacas are well suited to life in Britain. Graceful, dignified and placid, they
are also hardy and straightforward to look after, so they make excellent Grazing
Pets. Their inquisitive nature also means they can play a useful role as poultry
and lamb guards - and of course every year they are sheared to produce one of the
world’s great luxury fibres. Breeding alpacas can also represent a fine investment,
and one that will keep you enthralled as your herd grows.
How do I look after Alpacas
Alpacas are surprisingly low maintenance. They are used to extremes of temperature
will live outside all year round - 4-5 alpacas per acre of grass. Worming and vaccination
are needed each year and toenails should be trimmed every few months. Huacaya alpacas
need a visit from the shearer once a year in early summer.
