The Alpacas

I own four female alpacas. Two are suris and two are huacayas. I hope to learn about using the different fibre and how it spins and knits and possibly combine the two types in clothes and accessories. Three of my alpacas are pregnant, so have baby alpacas (called cria) to look forward to in the autumn!

Champagne

Champagne is a big, strong white female. She was born in England in 2007 and imported to Italy in 2009. She is calm once she gets to know you and I will be working on getting her more used to being handled. She has already had two cria and is a good mother. She was mated on 21 November to Zarza Cliquot, a white suri and is now pregnant, with her cria due at the end of October.

Nicola is a five-year-old black suri who is very friendly and tame and used to the halter. She can’t have any offspring, but loves the crias belonging to the other females and is a very good auntie!  I think she’ll have to be with three little ones lolloping around in autumn!
