Alpacas on Eight and Mud
Welcome to 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 to purchase alpacas.
Tours – We invite all fibre groups, weavers, spinners, knitter’s guilds, crochet and felting enthusiasts to contact us about setting up a group tour. We require at least a months notice for tours.
Alpaca Fibres – 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 and luster 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.
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. We have knitting supplies, felting supplies and a great line of yarns. We are your destination shop to visit.
