PaKman Farm is currently home to 16 alpacas and counting: 11 females and 5 males.
Alpacas were domesticated by the Incas more than 6,000 years ago. Their fiber was reserved exclusively for the elite and the nobaly.
Did You Know. . .
Alpaca fiber lacks lanolin which makes it hypoallergenic which also allows it to be processed without the need for high temperatures or harsh chemicals during washing.
Alpaca fiber is water resistant and flame resistant.
About 90% of Alpacas in North America are of the Huacaya breed. Huacaya has a wooly, dense, crimped fleece — like a teddy bear — giving it a very wooly appearance.
