Waterperry Alpacas was established just a few years ago, with the purchase of five alpacas from a local farm. We quickly learned what lovely animals they are and decided to build up a herd of top quality alpacas with the finest fleeces. We are fortunate in being surrounded by some of the best breeders in the county, who have given us help and support as well as selling us our initial breeding females and providing a stud service each year. As we have grown our herd (we now have 11 female adult alpacas and five cria (baby alpacas), who were born in July/August last year), we have grown our experience. I am now able to spin the fleece and I am learning to weave it, with a view to making scarves and fabrics from the beautifully soft fleece.
As we now have a larger herd, we also have alpacas for sale, all of whom are or will be British Alpaca Society registered, most with Bozedown and/or CS Alpaca genetics. Remember, if you are new to alpacas, they are herd animals so you will need to buy at least three, although obviously they need not all come from us. If you are thinking about whether alpacas are for you or simply want to learn more about alpacas, please contact us to arrange a visit for an informal alpaca experience. Alternatively, we launched our Yurt rental last year (not great timing given the pandemic but there you go), so maybe stay a few days and you can do as little or as much as you like.
