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.

Slurp time


  1. The hats look lovely...sounds as though you should be wearing them! We give ours freshly dug sugar beet from a local farmer, they love crunching on it and a trailer load lasts all winter.

  2. If this cold spell continues Judi, we'll be wearing one each! Our sugar beet comes in a plastic bag and has to be soaked overnight - so no crunch left in it! Take care. Shirley & Robbie

  3. Loving the lipstick boys!

    We had sleet on the hill on Friday too.
