Whistlers Bend Alpacas
Our fine homegrown alpaca fleeces - smooth & warm
Alpacas are shorn once a year. Their wool is very soft, smooth and warm. It is not itchy like a lot of sheep wool. It is free of lanolin which gives some people allergies.
Our best fleece is spun into 8 ply balls of wool by Adagio Mills in Orange, un-dyed, in the natural colours of our brown and fawn alpacas.
The remaining fleece is cleaned as cushion fill. A variety of cushion covers are available with alpaca themes.
Our small herd of Huacaya alpacas live near Bathurst in the Central West region of New South Wales.
They are a family of mothers, brothers, sisters and aunties: Philomena, Shalamara, Dolores, Daniella, Rachel, Kirsty, Piccolo, Jack, and Sandy.
The fathers are award-winning fleece producers: Ngullaminya Fitzwilliam and Encantador Ring Master.
The region is cold in winter and dry all year, providing excellent conditions for thick lush fleeces.
We are members of the Australian Alpaca Association and our alpacas are each registered via eAlpaca.
