Why Choose Alpaca Yarn??Alpacas

This highly regarded and much sought after rare Canadian Alpaca fiber and yarns are available in natural color and hand dyed yarn skeins. Each hand dyed skein is truly one of a kind Alpaca yarn is similar in texture to cashmere. The silky texture is perfect to enhance stitching details of any project. The fiber and yarn is produced with extreme care and conscientiousness to produce the most perfect and debris free fiber and yarns available. Yes! I am OCD with my alpacas and products but I will only produce and sell the highest quality products available! Garments made from Alpaca yarn are up to 8 times warmer than wool, yet light, sumptuous, comfortable and super soft. It also contains no lanolin, therefore is considered hypoallergenic and is a perfect alternative for those who have allergies to sheep's wool!

Why Choose A to Z Alpaca Yarn?? Our affordable alpaca yarn is raised and produced in Canada.. when buying alpaca yarn from Peru or anywhere else across the world you have no idea what you are getting. It may not even be alpaca!.. and even if it is its likely not a fine grade. We use only our premium, luxury soft baby and young adult fiber to produce our alpaca yarn. With over 300 alpacas and over a decade of knowledge we are confident in the quality of our yarns. We LOVE and adore our alpacas and are so grateful to them for donating their fleeces for us. Our customers have described our yarn as squishy, incredibly soft with a perfect halo, very warm and cozy, and easy to work with as the stitches glide along the needle or fingers effortlessly. And did I mention.. oh so SOFT! Perfect for knitting, crochet, weaving or any other yarn project.
But don't take my word for it! Be sure to read what my customers are saying :)

 

Care instructions: Alpaca yarn is feltable, so gently hand wash in cool water with a mild soap and lay flat to dry. Do not agitate, twist or shock the fibers by placing in cold then hot water or it will felt. Because of the nature of this fiber (its hair shaven from an animal) it is suggested to wash your finished product when blocking. Even though the fiber is washed at the mill before processing it still contains enough to darken clean water so its best to wash your finished products when blocking. The easiest way is to let soak in warm water with a bit of your favorite laundry soap. Let it sit (don't agitate it at all) for half hour or so. Then rinse in cool water. I use my top load washing machine to spin out the excess water and then lay it out flat to dry.

Alpaca Socks are Incredible!socks.jpg

 

WARM: Alpaca fiber is much warmer than sheep's wool and will keep your toes warm and happy.
HYPOALLERGENIC: These are unlike wool socks in that they do not itch! The alpaca fibre is lanolin free making these a perfect choice for someone who has allergies or unpleasant reactions to wool. 
DURABLE: Alpaca fiber is stronger than sheep's wool. These will last!
WICKS AWAY MOISTURE: Alpaca, like wool has the ability to wick moisture away from your skin leaving your feet feeling dry. They also resist odors and many 'alpaca sock lovers' claim to have considerably less foot odor. Major bonus! 
LIGHTWEIGHT: Alpaca fiber is light weight making a less bulky sock.
COMFORTABLE: These are super cushiony and cozy on your feet. I can't stress this point enough.. seriously the most comfy pair of socks ever!
WEAR ALL YEAR LONG: Alpaca socks are like wool socks in that they are great insulators! Keep you warm in the winter and cool in the summer.
70% Alpaca 20% Nylon 10% Spandex 
Our socks are made with a high alpaca content resulting in a warmer, stronger sock. The Nylon and very small amount of spandex help the sock to fit snugly around your foot and ensures the socks hold their shape.

Wash Instructions: These are machine washable on low heat/delicate settings. However I highly recommend hand washing them. They will last longer and if you accidentally get them into a hot load they may felt and shrink. They do not need to be washed as often as regular socks.. in fact we only wash them after wearing for a few days in a row. You can't wear a regular pair of socks a few days in a row without washing.. but these alpaca socks are far from normal!

 

DEAL Alert!! Please use my Etsy shop to see what I have for sizing and colors and send your message to save big! $160 for 4 pairs!! (any style, any color, any size)

Alpacas for Sale!
A to Z Alpacas is located in Southern Alberta, Canada, between Brooks and Taber. 

We have mom and baby pairs as well as exposed for next year. Geldings and some breeding males. They must go as a pair at minimum (meaning two females together, or two geldings together, and if buying pairs two moms and two babies do best). They come from a huge herd and will do better in groups of 3 or more. Having a male in with the females all year round is possible. BUT if the female slips her pregnancy at anytime they will rebreed right away and then you could run the risk of having a winter baby. (Which is ok if you have a warm enough barn for them) We keep our males separate and then have the herdsire come in and do his thing between May-July. That way the babies will come in the warm months,  Most will have babies but that is not something we guarantee at these prices.

Exposed Females (due for May-July 2023) $500 for White and $700 for colored

Breeding males $800 only white available

Gelding boys $300 for white $400 for brown or fawn ones $600 for black (ONLY ONE LEFT!)

White mom with white boy at side $800

Thank you! Please text me 403-654-6855 to set up an appointment to purchase alpacas. 

Leslie
