Quarry Critters Alpaca Ranch

Here at Quarry Critters Alpaca Ranch we are proud to offer high quality alpacas, with superior support and education to new breeders. We offer fleece that has been shorn from our own animals as well as unique handcrafted items. Alpacas are shorn once a year yielding roughly five to ten pounds of fiber. After only minimal preparation it is ready to be spun into yarn or used to make felt. Alpaca fiber is very soft, rivaling cashmere and angora for fineness therefore reducing the "prickle factor". Many individuals who are allergic to wools find that they do not have a problem wearing garments made from alpaca fiber. Alpaca is naturally flame retardant and will not absorb water into the fiber itself. Alpacas are gentle by nature, easy to care for, and are a great way to enhance your life, no matter where you live. Raising alpacas at your own ranch can offer some very attractive tax advantages and well as a regular income. We would be proud to introduce you to our herd and help you to pick out a package to get you started or add to your herd. We have a range of prices to match most budgets. Call or email to schedule an appointment. Let's talk alpaca.
