Welcome to Alandale Alpacas.

I have been a spinner, dyer, knitter and weaver for many years and I specialise in alpaca, both huacuya and suri.

I was until recently chair of the British Alpaca Society Fibre Committee and give talks, spinning lessons and fibre workshops across the country.

Alpaca has many magical properties being warm in winter and cool in summer. It has a hollow fibre so is light and extremely soft to the touch, like angels breath. Stronger than wool it is hypo-allergenic and does not have the “itch” factor associated with wool.

Raw fleece is available in natural colours with the name of the alpaca.

Dyed fleece comes in rainbow colours, but I can dye solid colours if required.  

Yarn is hand dyed by me  from Peruvian alpaca or local fleeces processed here in the West Country by my local mill.  Both solid and variageted yarns are available but colours are random and tend to be non-repeatable.

Please feel free to contact me for details or special requirements, if it’s possible, I’ll do it!

I have been involved in the hand crafting of alpaca products for many years and I pride myself on offering the finest possible quality.

I have a small herd of alpacas based in the West Country and use their  fleeces almost exclusively to create my hand spun yarns. Each hank comes with the name of the beautiful alpaca who provided the fleece.
