At Faerie Tale Alpacas we continuously strive to improve conformation and fleece quality. The alpaca industry in the UK has utilised the top genetics from around the world to accelerate our breeding programme. Since starting in 2008, we have taken great care to use only the most elite stud males from the top alpaca breeders in the UK. The males used are chosen for their elite fleece qualities and superior genetics; many are multi and supreme champions and have often been imported from South America or Australia which has an extremely advanced breeding programme. This careful selection has improved the quality of our crias year on year.
In 2015 we purchased our first stud males to introduce top quality colour into our herd. Aztec and Zaire are both superb coloured males offering elite genetics and in demand grey and black. Contact us for more details.
We are currently down sizing our herd for winter and have some lovely pet males at very competitive prices. Discounts on packages, full advice and after sales support given.
