Welcome To Rivendell Alpacas

Our Herd

Crystal and Rowan came back with us from California.  Then Crystal had a cria, and Rowan had a cria, and we bought Summer, and Summer had a cria.  Now we have many more.  They would all like to meet you.

Hats, Scarves, Etc.

We shear the alpacas once a year, and Jill makes felted hats and slippers and mittens from their fleece.  She weaves scarves from 100% alpaca yarn.  She also conducts half-day workshops where you can make your own hats and slippers and mittens, and learn the craft of felting.  More

About Alpacas

They originate from Peru and Bolivia and Chile, in the South American Andes mountains.  Their fleece is warmer and softer than wool.  They eat grass hay.  Their gestation period is just over 11 months.  They’re related to camels.  More
