Rising Sun

I’m a bit of celebrity around the farm and on social media. My fleece is super soft and luxurious, but even more than that, I’m apparently a one-of-a-kind, perfect specimen of an alpaca! I’m also as lovable as I am handsome, so pop into Shamarra Alpacas for a tour and a pat.

A glamorous damsel through and through, I’m a big fan of being groomed well ahead of a photo op (your next selfie on a farm tour). My big eyes look even better when my fleece is on fleek. And I’ve been known to wear the odd denim jacket or hat, depending on the season.

But don’t be intimidated by my flair for fashion; I’m always up for a solid cuddle like my other friends.

I absolutely adore wee human kiddos and alpaca babies alike! Arguably the friendliest of all the furry faces here at Shamarra, I like to get visits and snuggles year-round.

Our Top Picks for an Alpaca Wool Winter Wardrobe

Winter has arrived, and it’s time to snuggle up in style! Imagine wrapping yourself in the warmest, fluffiest embrace ever with alpaca fleece. These adorable creatures have a secret talent for creating the softest fibres on the planet, making them the ultimate winter fashion gurus! At Shamarra Alpacas, we’ve mastered the art of crafting sustainable, high-quality alpaca fleece while keeping our adorable alpacas happy. Let’s dive into a world of fluffy fashion and discover our top picks for your alpaca-inspired winter wardrobe.


Alpaca Sweaters

One of our top picks for an alpaca winter wardrobe is a cosy sweater made of 95% alpaca fleece. Our Sovereign Rib Jumper is a classic option, available in a natural cream and coffee to suit any style. Alpaca fleece is known for its softness and warmth, and it’s superior thermal qualities. The fleece is also naturally hypoallergenic and odour-resistant, making it an excellent choice for those with sensitive skin. It is the perfect, fashionable staple in your wardrobe to combat the frosty mornings!

Fact: Alpacas are shorn once a year, usually in the springtime. The fleece is then sorted by hand based on colour and quality before being sent to a mill for processing.

A warm scarf is a winter essential, and our Nova Scarf is the perfect choice. Made from 95% alpaca fleece, this scarf is super soft and warm, making it a great addition to any winter outfit. Plus, it comes in a range of colours to match your style.

Fact: Alpaca fleece comes in 22 different natural colours, ranging from white to black and everything in between. This means that alpaca clothing and accessories can be made without the use of harsh dyes or chemicals.

Alpaca Blankets

Snuggle up with an alpaca blanket on a cold winter night. Our range of alpaca throws and blankets are made from 95% alpaca fleece, making them super soft and warm. They’re also naturally hypoallergenic and lightweight, making it easy to take with you wherever you go, like your next ski adventure at Cardrona! It is also a great roadie addition in winter – keeping the kids toasty and warm in the back seat.

Fact: Alpaca fleece is graded based on its fineness, with the finest fibres being the most desirable. The finer the fibre, the softer and more luxurious the finished product will be.
