Alpaca fibre is wonderfully warm, soft and natural and does not need harsh chemicals in either the growing or scouring processes.

The fleece is also hypo-allergenic as it contains no lanolin and the finished items are breathable. 

Shop

We have a shop in our weaving studio where we sell our high quality alpaca products and a small range of alpaca products made by other craftspeople.  You can buy some of our products through our online shop: www.alpacabox.co.nz. 


The shop is open whenever we are on the farm, so just give us a call to check we are here before visiting.

Alpaca fibre is wonderfully warm, soft and natural and does not need harsh chemicals in either the growing or scouring processes. The fleece is also hypo-allergenic as it contains no lanolin and the finished items are breathable. 

They are easy to wash by leaving to soak in a tub (in a wool wash that doesn't need to be rinsed out, available in supermarkets) for and hour or so, give a rinse and then a short, slow spin in the washing machine. Hang on a line to dry, a breeze will fluff the blankets up beautifully. Mothers have been know to wash the baby blankets in the machine, as long as it is a delicate/wool wash with 30-40% water temperature, they might thicken up slightly but will still be fine. Please avoid enzyme type detergent. The enzymes are designed to attack proteins and alpaca and wool is a protein fibre.

Colour note: Natural white alpaca fleece spins and weaves up as a warm off-white (ivory). This is not dyed or bleached. The fine yarns we use at present are dyed or bleached. Products available change as weaving continues! Please contact us and let us know what you are looking for. Most of our products are woven with integral patterns or textures, though we can weave plain fabric if required.
