For some local fibre love be sure to check out the Opulent Alpaca – a luxury alpaca and wool boutique. Owners Barry and Isabel took over the family farm business, which began 4 generations ago in 1897, and began raising alpacas. Alpacas have luxurious fibre, they come in 22 natural hues and have two different fibre types, the Suri and Huacaya. The Huacaya is the most common type with a crimp or wavy like fleece while the Suri has long, straight lustrous stands. Barry and Isabel have been building their heard with a mixture of both fleece types and today produce a high quality and luxurious product that also promotes agriculture and living off the land. The offerings at the Opulent Alpaca – as a direct result of both passion and superior product are simply divine be sure to stop by.
