Welcome to the Glenhope Alpaca sale.
We have spent the last 20 years building this herd of advanced alpacas with the assistance of the late Dr Jim Watts as our breeding advisor.
His scientific background and extensive research has been critical in developing this line of animals that we are now offering for sale. The fleece markers that are most important are reducing the primary fibre diameter, increasing density and length, developing softness and lustre in the fibre and having fibre that has good elasticity for processing.
The selection of our certified males was done using skin testing to finally determine their suitability. Our younger males on offer as potential herd sires have been thoroughly vetted using our fleece markers and visual assessment of their conformation and other physical traits. We are confident that the males on offer would enhance any breeding herd.
We will be interested to follow the progress of these animals in other herds.
