Welcome to Twoloom Alpacas
We believe an alpaca can be bred that will maintain a 20 micron or less fleece over it's lifetime. That an alpaca with a standard diviation of 1 is a reality. We believe that we can attain that goal while breeding for black colour.
We believe an alpaca can have exceptional fibre qualities and both great conformation and a good disposition. That disposition and conformation are as important a criteria as is fleece quality.
We believe an alpacas value is in it's fleece, not in the piece of paper attached to it. An alpaca that can maintain a low micron count over time, with minimal deviation in it's fleece, little or no guard hair, and a good density should be of high value regardless of where it's registered.
We believe that a viable fleece industry can exist in Canada. That the first step is to create a brand and a market for what we currently can produce. The creation of a "Buy Local" program along with collective branding, buying, and marketing opportunities are essential. We have a large driving force in Ontario, through the members of Alpaca Ontario, and a number of alpaca farms that have started to form co-operatives.
