Alpacas are considered to be the aristocrat of all farm animals. North America is still considered a breeder’s market, but worldwide, alpaca fiber is in very high demand. This indicates that alpaca fiber will remain valuable on the long term market. Alpacas are shorn once a year, yielding 5 – 10 pounds of exquisite fleece each. The fiber, virtually grease-free, can be hand spun directly off of the animal. Alpacas are one of the easiest, gentlest, most intelligent, cleanest, earth friendliest and profitable animals to raise.
