Our original four boys came from Ardo Alpacas in Aberdeenshire. We are not alpaca breeders and have our boys purely as pets. Our experience is that you don't need to be a breeder and that a 'batchelor herd' can give much pleasure to the owner. We have 5 acres including our big garden and grazing for the boys, 15 miles north of Inverness, Scotland. I spin, knit, felt and crochet with the fleece from the boys.


Just a reminder that clicking on (most) of the photos will show them greatly enlarged.

Frosty mornings


  1. They certainly look contended...our bunch are the same, prefering the finer meadow hay...they have obviously forgotten where they came from...walking miles a day to find food in Peru! :))

  2. Your boys look very happy !!...indeed...you have had lots more frost than me....where is your mud !!....and I love the handiwork !!.......Jayne

  3. My goodness! Is that snow, or just a big bad freeze?! Yes, the boys look quite contented with their nice fine hay! I love your little purse. I can almost feel how soft it is!! ...debbie
