Alpaca Yarns NZ
Alpaca Yarns NZ are passionate about Alpacas and Alpaca yarn and they also think it’s important to keep this industry thriving in Peru in a sustainable way. That’s why their fabulous alpaca knitting yarn stock is sourced from a supplier who has set up breeding ranches in the Andean highlands. The supplier's main emphasis is on improving alpacas through sustainable breeding practices, educating small farmers who own most of the animals throughout the region.
And, beneficially for everyone, there is a growing demand for the Alpaca fibre in textile and fashion centres throughout the world. With a drastically limited supply of these animals outside South America and stringent export restrictions on further transport of their national treasures in order to avoid depletion of their own herds, consumers want more fleece than farmers can produce.
