Aside from having a wonderful handle, often so soft that you can wear right next to your skin, what’s so special about alpaca fiber? It’s extremely warm, is the strongest mammal fiber, is light weight, and very water resistant. It has other qualities, as well.
Our Alpaca are raised in a stress-free natural environment that is grown without herbicides. They are not dipped in pesticide baths, and no chemicals, dyes, or bleaches have been used during the processing. Their fiber does not contain lanolin like sheep's wool, or grease, and is cleaned with natural products.
Each shaft of Alpaca fiber has scales much like sheep, but they are closer to the shaft and have a more rounded edge, making the "prickly" factor less noticeable. Alpaca fiber is a perfect alternative for those that suffer from allergies to sheep's wool and feathers.

Alpacas have a very efficient 3 stomach digestive system. Leaving very little, if any, undigested food/seeds that otherwise would become weeds in your garden, unlike other livestock. It has high levels of nitrogen & potassium, major plant nutrients.
Our Aplaca beans are available in 2#, 20#, and 50# bags. If you would like to bring your own burlap sac or 5 gallon bucket and shovel it yourself, there is no cost!

Live Alpaca Sales
Although we focus more of our attention on fiber sales and production, a small part of our operation focuses on breeding. We have had two cria born at Willow City Farm, and a third will come next spring. Although we'd love to keep them all, we cannot always keep our mother/son or father/daughter pairs on our farm. When it it time to introduce new lines, we will occasionally have alpaca for sale.
We also have many alpaca that are available for lease. For more information on purchasing or leasing one of our many alpaca, just contact us!
