Like all animals, the more you handle them, the more they will do. They can do obstacle courses with children, go for walks on the beach, or carry small packs or they can just be a pleasure to see out in your paddocks.
Their biggest asset is their fleece – soft, hypo-allergenic, can be used alone or with other natural fibres and extremely light and warm, not to mention the wide colour variety. There are now several processors to assist with getting a fleece to various stages, whether just carded or made up into yarn or completed garments.
Pacific alpacas collect, process and pay for fleeces if you are not using them yourself – we are a collection point for fleeces. If you want to know or join their network visit www.pacificalpacas.com
