Sale and Care

Alpacas make excellent pets and are also show animals. They are easily trained to lead and are gentle enough to be handled by children.

In the early days we attended several training days on the care and handling of alpaca, and now we teach others, this is free if you buy from Sampford Alpacas.

Advice can be given on land and other requirements and follow up help as well.

Several groups of alpaca that we have sold are now doing well in the show ring, whilst others are doing a good job keeping foxes away or entertaining visiting customers.

How we use the alpaca fleece

There is much enjoyment in looking after these special animals, and going through the process of using their fleece, which is made into a variety of things.

All the fleece is used to make, amongst other things, scarves, throws, clothing, material, hats, mittens, stuffed teddy bears and other animals, as well as knitting wool. All of which are sold at shows and craft fairs.

“We have bought six alpacas from Rosalind Pugh and she was extremely helpful not only in helping us make sure the alpacas settled down but in providing comprehensive and advice and support. All the alpacas we have bought from Rosalind are very calm and are obviously used to being handled. I would recommend whole heartedly buying from her, we use our alpacas for animal assisted intervention helping young people with learning difficulties and disabilities and they are a joy to work with”
