Awatere Alpaca Stud has a wide range of both Huacaya and Suri Alpacas for sale – from breeding females to pets. We can tailor packages to suit your needs such as '3 in 1' packages (a pregnant female with a cria at foot) or starter herds – which could be any other grouping the customer desires.  We offer the appropriate discount for multiple sales. 


Awatere Alpaca Stud has a stable of stud males working for us, representing an enviable range of genetics, and with several ambitious younger males coming along. Awatere Society Blade is the newest addition to our stud male line-up.  He was bred on this farm and is very keen to start this spring.


Also available for sale is the beautiful soft handling 100% alpaca knitting yarn from our very own alpacas, commercially spun into 4 ply, 8 ply or boucle (10 ply). It is available in either the natural colour, solid dyed colours or random dyed / variegated yarn.

100% Alpaca Knitting Yarn - 100% grown and processed in New Zealand

Alpaca fleece is generally as soft as Cashmere and stronger, lighter and warmer than sheep wool.  It is also regarded as hypoallergenic as it has little or no lanolin. It can generally be worn next to the skin.  100% alpaca soft handling yarn is a pleasure to knit.  As it is lighter than wool, the yarn tends to go a little further. 100% Alpaca yarns commercially spun especially for Awatere Alpacas is available in natural colouring, or in unique hand dyed colours.
