Welcome to our Farm
At Alpacas from Eighth & Mud our focus is on continued improvement in our Canadian Alpaca bloodlines. While maintaining, fine fibre, crimp, density and that oh, so friendly personality of our Alpacas makes them memorable.
Breeding and Bloodlines
We feature a proud selection of top quality Alpaca, be it our Herdsire, females, yearlings and Crias. We offer complete hands-on training and excellent support to our clients. Our show results demonstrate that we are meeting our breeding program objectives.
Alpaca fleece is a lustrous and silky natural fiber. While similar to sheep's wool, it is warmer, not prickly, and having no lanolin makes it hypoallergenic.
Alpaca is naturally water-repellent.
Huacaya, an alpaca that grows soft spongy fiber, has natural crimp thus making a naturally elastic yarn well-suited for knitting, weaving, crocheting and felting.
Alpaca fibre is as soft as Cashmere, but has a smoother cuticle that can make the fibre feel smoother.
We invite all fibre groups, weavers, spinners, knitter's guilds, crochet and felting enthusiasts to contact us about visiting our farm.
The Fiber Shop
All products in our store are made from Alpaca fibre along with various specialty blends of Silk, Bamboo, Merino and other exotic blends.
