I have owned and bred Alpacas since March 2002, purchasing my first four animals from Elite Alpacas International, owned and Operated by Ron Condon, a well known Australian Alpaca breeder.
For those of you not familiar, an Alpaca ... according to Wikipedia... is a domesticated species of South American camelid. It resembles a small Llama in appearance.
Alpacas are considerably smaller than Llamas and are bred specifically for their fibre. Their fleece is used to make knitted and woven items, similar to wool. Their fibre comes in many natural colours.
They are a truly delightful animal.
