About Thunder Mountain Alpacas

Thunder Mountain Alpacas raises high quality Suri alpacas and has their fiber turned into fine suri alpaca products. We also have suri alpacas for sale that are excellent alpacas but are extras, we can only keep so many suri alpacas on our small ranch. We are working with some other suri breeders to obtain a volume of fiber enough to have it processed into 100 percent North American suri alpaca fabric. Please visit our Products page to see a sample of the gorgeous suri alpaca fabric, some samples of shawls made from suri alpaca yarn and links to other web sites that have alpaca products. Visit our Alpacas For Sale web page to see the current suri alpacas we have for sale. If you like pretty animals, do not miss going to Our Alpacas web page to see the variety of colors and looks that suri alpacas come in.

Alpacas come in two varieties: huacaya and suri. The huacaya alpacas look like teddy bears on long legs and produce a very springy and warm fiber. The suri alpaca look like they have "dread locks" as their fiber usually is curly and hangs down the sides of the alpaca. Suri alpaca produce fiber that looks more like silk than wool and is cool and smooth to the touch. Thunder Mountain Alpacas is breeding and raising suri alpacas with low micron counts and high luster. Our goal is to produce fiber good enough to make fine alpaca fabric for the high fashion circuit out of our suri fiber. We also have a small number of suri alpacas for sale that also have excellent fleeces.

Alpaca fiber, sometimes mistakenly referred to as alpaca wool, is sorted into 22 distinct colors, ranging from blacks through browns and whites, and including subtle shades of maroon, peach and grays. Alpaca fiber can be blended into an infinite array of natural colors, including combinations that do not occur naturally. Alpaca fiber takes and retains dyes very well.

Alpaca fiber has little to no guard hair and no lanolin. It is unusually strong and resilient. Fabrics made of alpaca fiber are unusually easy to care for and long-lived. These and other qualities make alpaca fiber a sought out commodity in commercial textile houses. Alpaca fiber offers the following benefits and qualities

  • Alpaca fiber is extremely fine with little guard hair
  • Alpaca fiber is compatible with either the woolen or worsted systems
  • Alpaca fiber has excellent insulate or thermal qualities
  • Alpaca fiber has a rich silky sheen which has high visual appeal in the apparel industry
  • Alpaca fiber is warmer than Merino wool
  • Alpaca fiber is more abrasion resistant than Merino wool
  • Alpaca fiber has a higher tensile strength than wool
  • Alpaca fiber contains no grease, oil or lanolin and does not smell
  • Alpaca fiber does not retain water and can resist solar radiation
  • Alpaca Fiber is rare - supply cannot keep up with demand for fine quality fleece
  • Alpaca Fiber can be carded and blended with other natural and/or synthetic fibers
  • Alpaca fiber can be easily dyed any color without losing its sheen

Currently we have all of our suri alpacas for sale. We are offering several package deals. Since we have a small farm, we cannot keep all of the crias that we get and have to sadly let some of them go to other alpaca owners.
