During the informative seminars, Alonso Burgos from IncaAlpaca announced that from now on in Peru, they would be paying as much for coloured as white fleece - previously it had been about half.
He also stressed the importance of fine, soft handling fleece, which is of course what we are trying to acheive here at Melford Green, however we responded to the latest news by securing the finest fleece black and brown females in the catalogue. They will be arriving in Darsham soon...

Alpaca fleece is the epitome of modern day luxury combining supreme softness and warmth. It is also light and hypo-allergenic. At Melford Green our alpaca breeding programme aims to improve the quality of this wondrous fleece still further and so help define UK alpaca.
Melford Green is committed to first class animal welfare and sustainable farming techniques. We also support local business within Suffolk.
Specially selected breeding females, companion alpacas and also pet alpacas are now available for sale. Please browse through our website for details of these animals.
