Three of the Best!

At last, we can see Mateus's first three cria of this year safely on the ground. Igraine and Peredur are shown here checking out the new arrival Esmeree.

Our little fawn girl is Vivianne's daughter, and the white boy is from Niniane. Esmeree, less than one hour old in this picture, is a beautiful light golden fawn colour, often called "Champagne". She is the daughter of Isuelte.

As expected, their conformation and fleeces look absolutely superb, and we are already starting to look forward to the Show circuit next year!

Mateus, our champion alpaca stud
   has fathered these three cria.

SouthWest Alpacas is an independent UK alpaca breeder, based in Devon, south west England, UK. We took up alpaca breeding for their wonderful fleece, not to mention their calm temperament, and the simplicity of farming alpacas. Their luxurious natural fibre is light, strong, soft & warm, and it comes in 22 natural colours, from a true rich black, through chocolate brown and russet, as well as various shades of grey, honey and fawn, to a light champagne and finally pure white. It also holds dye very well, which makes alpaca fibre ideal for organic or hypoallergenic clothing & fashion, from hats to gloves, jumpers & scarves or scarfs. Alpaca fibre is an untreated natural fabric, making it ideal for people with allergies & sensitive skin. Our website offers a wealth of information on alpaca breeding, alpaca fleeces & alpaca yarns. We also offer links for information on luxury knitwear - designer knitwear - alpaca clothing & knitwear - as well as alpaca fur toy animals.
