  2. Alpacas are easy to care for.
  3. Alpaca fibers are the stronger, lighter and more resilient than wool.
  4. Alpaca fiber is hypo-allergenic and non-irritating.
  5. Alpaca fiber is as soft and luxurious as cashmere, making it wonderful to wear!

We are so thankful for visitors to our farm! We love to teach others about our soft, gentle herd. Visit Windrush Alpacas on Open Farm Day, Saturday November 14 from 10 am to 3 pm. Take a guided tour of the farm and learn why raising these beautiful animals is so rewarding.

Alpacas are Showing some Skin at Windrush Farms!

Shorn pacaCome to see the alpacas strut their stuff! After shearing this spring, our entire herd is ready to show off some skin!

Visit with all of our alpacas at Open Farm Day, Saturday, June 13, 2015. Tour the farm to meet with the freshly shorn alpacas. They can’t wait for you to see their summer coats. They were even filmed by PBS during their shearing! These alpacas are real stars!

While on tour you’ll learn why they need to be shorn each year, how their fleece is used and the importance for the farmers to use shearing time to evaluate each alpaca’s health. You’ll likely hear tales of spitting and retaliation from some of the alpacas who would prefer to keep their winter coats and not have their yearly ‘spa’ day.

After meeting with the celebrity alpacas, enter our Farm Store to see the many products created from their fleece. Feel the softness of our Dramatic Nuno Felted Alpaca/Silk scarf – made right here at our farm! Or cuddle with a hand-crocheted Pac-a-Bear, made from the fibers of our very own alpacas. There is also a selection of yarns for you to purchase so you can create your very own alpaca fashions.

For those who wish they could take home one of these gentle, soft animals, we’ve got the next best thing! Sign up for our Adopt-a-Paca Program! For one year, you will have a very special alpaca to call your own. Upon adoption you will receive an official certificate and a picture of your alpaca. You will even receive periodic letters from your alpaca. And you can visit your alpaca whenever the farm is open.

Open Farm Day is for everyone! Tell your neighbors and friends. Make it an adventurous day for all! We even provide light refreshments. There is always something new to learn and see at the farm.

Indulge her in a lightweight scarf or wrap. Or treat her feet to soft-as-a-cloud pair of alpaca socks. If she’s a knitter – she will be in paradise with the selection of yarns!
