Alpaca Fiber

The value of alpaca fleece is the economic basis of the future market for alpacas. An alpaca breeder with a small herd on small acreage can expect to harvest his animals' fiber and sell their offspring profitably.

Most alpaca ranchers readily sell their fleece for $2 to $6 an ounce to local artisans. Each animal on average will produce five to eight pounds of fleece a year.

SADDLE PADS

As fine as or finer than cashmere, each saddle blanket is a natural, one of a kind creation and beautifully hand woven. Our blankets are single layer blankets similar to a Navajo but are much, much thicker. Every blanket is woven from from OUR ALPACAS’ FIBER in their natural colors and is hand-woven from roving vs machined from yarn thus affording extreme durability.  Contact us for COLOR SELECTION!

Don't let these handsome blankets fool you. Our blankets are very popular with the ranching industry because of the great cushion and protection for the horse's back, in addition to their durability. Unlike sheep, alpacas are lanolin free which means their fiber does not collect odors or smells. Because alpaca fibers are slick (sheep fibers have scales or microscopic barbs) the blankets do not collect horse hair nearly as fast as sheep wool blankets. Equally as important, alpaca wool is so much lighter in weight than sheep wool, alpaca blankets dry much faster than heavy, wet sheep blankets. These characteristics help to ensure your blanket is dry and ready for your next ride. The more you use your blanket, the sooner it will conform to your horse. You will notice it becoming even softer and "felting" a bit as it molds to your horse's unique shape. It will naturally maintain its compression, thermal and moisture wicking properties.
