About Alpacas

About Us
We bought our farm for horses but then discovered alpacas.  All of our past animal experience, our professional backgrounds and our relatively new knowledge about farming worked together to help us make the transition.   But, there are always a lot of fun stories to tell along the way when you undertake an adventure like an old 50 acre farm, and a new species!

Adult Females for Sale

Choosing the breedings can be lots of fun, caring for the dam is loaded with anticipation, waiting, watching and wondering when the time will come can be a little nerve-wracking.  But welcoming a new cria into the world is a thrill worth waiting for!

Alpaca Clothing
Once you have worn an alpaca sweater, with its soft handle and cozy warmth, you will want another! And then there are those blankets! And vests! and gloves....

Alpaca Fleeced Hide

When an alpaca dies, they can still give the gift of exquisite fiber in a properly prepared hide.

Alpaca Four by Six Rugs

Alpaca Rugs
Your feet won't believe what they feel when they step on an alpaca rug barefoot!  These rugs are all natural colors and each is unique.

Alpaca Sales

Proper genetic planning prior to purchase and post sale support are very important in choosing a breeder from whom you purchase animals.

Alpaca Six by Nine Rugs

Alpaca Three by Five Rugs

Alpaca Yarn and Roving

Alpaca is a delightful, soft fiber which can be spun alone or blended with other fibers to create yarns of different strengths, sheen and character.  Try all of them and find your favorites. 

Alpacas for Sale

Animal Husbandry Links
Animal Husbandry is the formal name for breeding and raising livestock. In alpaca breeding, as in the breeding of any other species, this involves nutritional issues such as feed analysis and pasture management, health issues, knowledge of genetics, birthing and raising young and many other issues.  We keep current with these issues with the assistance of wonderful organizations involved with alpacas.

Boarding/Agisting

Boarding or agisting alpacas on a breeder's farm allows time for a new owner to learn alongside those with experience and it allows other owners to invest in alpacas without owning a farm.

Breeding
Nobility Alpacas, Ltd owns a multi-champion herdsire and we are raising several other impressive herdsires for diversity in breeding to your female alpacas.

Certified Sorted Apprenticeship Seminar
Fourteen alpaca breeders gathered in Harrisville, New Hampshire to learn to sort and grade alpaca fiber by the Certified Sorted method.

Certified Sorting & Grading Alpaca Fiber; Step Two

Why should you sort and grade your alpaca fiber? Because you can then make the best decisions about breeding matches, use of your fiber and have great information for selling your fiber and alpacas.

Certified Sorting and Grading of Alpaca Fiber
Certified Sorting of your Alpaca Fiber gives you many advantages, including increasing the profit from your fiber. Don't give your hard won harvest away or undervalue it. Talk to me about Certified Sorting today!

Chicken Tales

They may not be the smartest critters God ever made, but they certainly are entertaining!  And useful, too.  We enjoy fresh eggs from our free range chickens daily and less flies and other "bugs" as well.

Farm and Miscellaneous Items for Sale
Change is inevitable and here on the farm, it is as well. As the farm becomes more refined and we complete grading and building projects, some equipment just isn't needed anymore. We also have horses and anyone who does knows how the equipment changes with the mounts! Check out our farm items for sale here.

Farm Fun and Memories


One of the most fun parts of alpaca ranching is taking pictures! Some of the most fun pictures are of the spontaneous, everyday situations, so keep a camera nearby!

Fiber Links
The gift of the alpaca to us is their extraordinary fiber.  It is why we raise them and so we continue to study and learn all we can about it.

Fiber, Fiber!

Foundation Stock

Meet our exceptional resident foundation herd, our sweet gelding companions and our macho guard Llama, Prince  Caspian.  

We currently have 22 animals on the farm and house them in three different buildings and we rotate them in seven different pastures.  


Gallery of Show Pictures


In the alpaca business, showing your animals is an important part of documenting your animals' best qualities. It is also important to take your own photos to keep a record of your alpaca's cria, juvenile and full fleece and regrowth after shearing.

Geldings and Fiber Animals
Here is a list of our gelded animals or those that we have chosen not to breed but whose fiber we still use. 

Harris Designs Yarn Spinning Mill

Apprentices for the Certified Sorted Seminar began their education by watching the process by which fiber becomes yarn.

Herdsires

History of Alpacas


Alpacas are members of the camelid family and have a fascinating story - past and present.  They are native to Peru, Chile and Bolivia, still raised in mountain herds there, valued for their fiber and hides and eaten as meat. 


How We Got Our Start
We had always intended to make the farm a profitable business and thought it would involve horses until we experienced how much labor they required in larger numbers.  When we changed our focus to alpacas, all of our previous labors worked right into raising camelids. 

Juvenile Females for Sale

Being able to raise a cria and be involved in all of their training from birth is fun - after all, they are the cutest critters alive! 

Even more meaningful is being able to see multiple generations of females raising their young together. 


Kits
We have assembled several kits so anyone can try out projects such as knitting a headband and fingerless gloves or hand dye a length of roving for spinning. We also have needle felting kits which are easy and lots of fun.

Male Alpacas for Sale

                                     
It can be a challenge keeping all of these youngsters from wrestling  each other to the ground, but our guard llama, Prince, keeps the young boys in line, most of the time!


Mentoring into the Alpaca Business
Becoming an alpaca owner and breeder requires important stages of learning.  At Nobility Alpacas, we understand the learning process and want to help new alpaca owners as they encounter every stage.

NAL Events

This has been a year of much learning at a variety of events. We look forward to sharing with visitors at National Alpaca Farm Days and getting ready for the fall holiday seasons.
We have a beautiful variety of alpaca products to keep you and your loved ones warm and beautiful!  Think early holiday shopping.



News from the Farm


Life is change. And sometimes it seems that the changes have come so fast or while we weren't looking! We have been blessed by the marriage of our oldest daughter, Natalie, in the last year. Another daughter has gone off to college and we are so happy to see them all flourish.

Photo Gallery

Watching a new cria arrive and learn how to interact with the world is a fascinating experience.  Once they, literally, hit the ground, they learn to stand up on long, weak, wiggly legs and find their source of milk all by themselves. In their first day, they run, roll, and even play with other crias. Amazing!

Qualities of Prime Alpaca Fiber

If you breed alpacas, you are in the fiber business. Even if you never learn to knit or weave or spin and you have them to breed and show and sell, the whole point of an alpaca’s domestic existence in America, is fiber.

Services
When purchasing, breeding or boarding an alpaca, you want to know that your valuable animal will be in honorable and competent hands.  At Nobility Alpacas, we strive to offer the best quality services to novice and experienced breeders alike.

Store


Alpaca rugs, yarn, fleece, roving and even furry hides for sale here!  Alpacas are raised for their fiber and we have many examples of this royal fiber from which to choose!

The New Crias

 The arrival of cria is both exciting and nerve-wracking, at least until they stand up, dry off and nurse on their own.  Within hours, a new cria clumsily jumps and attemps to run in their small area and before you know it, they are racing around the fields and rolling in the dirt!

Virtual Tour

We bought our farm in 1999 and set about rehabilitating it for our family and our horses.  When we decided to raise alpacas, some of our rehab designs changed.  We also changed the way we managed the soil and how we harvested our hay.  It has been an adventure!
