Welcome to Classical MileEnd Alpacas owned by Chas Brooke and Rachel Hebditch. Thrilled to welcome two new stud males to our herd Artwork B.R. Macchiato and Evolution Volcanicity. These two top notch males will join Classical MileEnd Florian and Houghton Placido as stud males. All four are available for drive-by services and will add new and exciting genetics to your herd. Please look at our stud service page for details of their fleece statistics, show winnings and availability. We are always ready for a chat if you wish to discuss the best male for your females.
We run a herd of around 100 alpacas on our farm in Devon and always have pregnant females and stud males for sale. At this time of year the weanlings are ready to go to their new homes so please get in touch if you are looking for pet males or weanling girls who will be ready to mate in the summer or next spring. Below are some pictures of the fleeces we are producing.
We love our alpacas and are hugely enthusiastic about our breeding programme which is designed to produce healthy productive alpacas with excellent conformation and advanced fleeces. Our farm has a strict bio-security plan for the management of risks which includes having the perimeter of the farm securely fenced against any incursion by wildlife. Management and avoidance of infectious diseases forms a big part of our daily farm practice. If you would like more information on this please read the section here
We have a wide range of alpacas for sale from show winning males and females, pregnant females with cria at foot and stud males to charming geldings who make wonderful field pets or sheep and flock guards.
UK Alpaca, our alpaca yarn manufacturing company, has a range of sumptuous double knit and 4-ply baby alpaca and silk yarns in gorgeous colours and the superfine alpaca 4-ply, chunky and double knit range has been expanded too. A new Speckledy range made from the darker fibre, blended with white and then overdyed and proved to be extremely popular. Our first range of dyed 4-ply suri yarns and undyed marl suri yarns are now available. These yarns are all made from the fleeces of alpacas bred in Britain and our fleece suppliers can buy the yarns at wholesale prices with no minimum order. Natural yarns are available on cone as well. We welcome trade enquiries and all our yarns can be bought from the UK Alpaca webshop at www.ukalpaca.com
This year’s fleece collection will open in the spring if you would like to sell your fleece to us. Please go to www.ukalpaca.com for more details.
