European alpaca farms

Alpaca farms are suitable places for these curious, peaceful and majestic animals.
For breeders, creating an alpaca farm is not a simple task. In order to become an alpaca breeder, one must first undergo a very selective and rigorous training for about ten years. After this training, an alpaca breeder can start to build up a herd of several alpacas, while taking care of their well-being and their adaptation to this new environment, because the alpaca is an animal that needs a lot of attention and affection.

Alpacas are animals that originate from the Andean highlands. They belong to the family of domestic camelids. They have an elegant, fine and racy look. Entirely covered with an extraordinary wool, alpacas are characterized by their straight and pointed ears with a rounded back, a long neck and two toes with two pads and two nails. They weigh between 60 and 80 kilos for a size varying between 90cm and 1m. Their life expectancy is about 20 years, they acclimatize easily to their living environment as long as they are not alone. Indeed, alpacas have a gregarious instinct and need to be in the company of others. It is vital for their happiness to share their living environment with other alpacas. They also need a lot of space to run. Their diet consists mainly of grass, brambles, foliage and hay.

Often confused with the llama, the alpaca is smaller, more fearful and much less aggressive than the llama. The alpaca is a gentle, sociable, intelligent, reserved and very harmless animal. When you are in contact with an alpaca, it is possible to establish a peaceful, harmonious and fusional relationship. Their education is relatively easy because they are harmless animals with a gentle and very docile character.
Alpaca breeders create a relationship with each of them. This one remains soothing and very serene. It is an anti-stress animal, which brings tenderness and comfort.
You can be sure of one thing: alpacas will love you! They are sociable and affectionate with everyone including other animals.

So come and visit them in their farms during a walk near your home!

Here are a few anecdotes about alpacas and their wool!

- The alpaca is a particularly enduring and versatile animal. It can be confronted without any problem to drastic temperature variations thanks to its thermoregulatory wool.

- Alpaca wool was selected by NASA to dress the cosmonauts during the Apollo 11 mission. We can thus say that alpaca went to the moon! Indeed, the exceptional virtues of alpaca wool offering thermoregulation, warmth, comfort and softness were perfect for this trip to the unknown land.

- Alpaca wool is one of the most ecological in the world; their fiber is recyclable and biodegradable, one of the most durable and resistant over time. Alpacas do not pull up grass when they feed, but cut it. This allows the grass to grow back quickly. It does not damage the pastures because instead of hooves there is a soft pad and a nail.

- Alpaca wool is also called "wool of the Gods" because in the past, in the lands of the Inca Empire, alpaca was worth more than gold. The most precious good of the empire remained the alpaca cloths, reserved for the emperor and the nobility.

- It was frequent in Peru in 500 BC, to bury oneself with one's alpaca. Considered as a particularly noble animal, precious and sign of wealth but also as a sacred animal, some owners were buried with their alpacas.

All these anecdotes prove that alpaca wool is unbeatable and out of the ordinary. Too little known, this wool of the Gods must be valued and put forward.
