Alpacas For Sale - Fiber/Pet Quality

Alpaca as Pets/Fiber Quality Animals:

Most alpacas make very good pets if they are treated well and the owners are realistic in their expectations. Like any livestock, the more handling they receive as youngsters, the quieter they are as adults. Given time, most alpacas will eat out of your hand and training them to lead by a halter is a straightforward process.

Alpacas generally don't like being held and are particularly sensitive to being touched on the head. They are naturally curious and intelligent and if you let them approach you, rather than rush at them and expect an affectionate response, the interactions can be very rewarding.

It is possible to have a single alpaca, but it is not a pleasant existence for the animal. Alpacas are herd animals and are instinctively gregarious, as are other domestic livestock. They obtain security and contentment from having at least one other alpaca for company.

For this reason, it is usually recommended that two or three alpacas is the desirable minimum.

Island Alpaca Company is now offering alpacas for sale to those who simply want to own them as pets or fiber producers.  Most animals are halter trained. Our alpacas are quality males with great fiber and are a great way to get started in the alpaca business at a very reasonable price.

Our PET/FIBER QUALITY alpacas are healthy, well cared for animals with great personalities. They are usually males who may not have, or it is not yet known, if the alpaca has all the superior characteristics imperative for a herd sire. They have been handled since birth and have been successfully halter/lead trained.  They may have show ring experience. Their fiber will produce quality yarn for the hand spinner.  They are a sensible purchase for families and spinners who want to enjoy their alpaca’s company and fiber but are not interested in breeding, or would like to gain experience by owning alpaca before entering into ownership of breeding stock.
