Details

We are a working hill farm on the shores of Ullswater. Come and meet Cross Dormont's new family members. Gilbert, Alfie, Rockie and Jacob.

Alpacas have been domesticated for thousands of years, the Moche people of northern Peru often used alpaca images in their art. There are no known wild alpacas, though its closest living relative, the vicuņa (also native to South America), are believed to be the wild ancestor of the alpaca. Along with camels and llamas, alpacas are classified as camelids. Of the various camelid species, the alpaca and vicuņa are the most valuable fiber-bearing animals: the alpaca because of the quality and quantity of its fiber, and the vicuņa because of the softness, fineness and quality of its coat.

Alpacas are too small to be used as pack animals. Instead, they are bred exclusively for their fiber and meat. Alpaca meat was once considered a delicacy by Andean inhabitants.
