ALPACA HARMONY, LLC is located in north central Idaho on the outskirts of the Camas Prairie. Owner, Brandy Vernay Henson, has been involved with the alpaca industry since 1999 and started her own breeding program in 2005.
Our high quality herd, comprised of champion and well-known elite genetics, has grown from carefully selected foundation females with an emphasis on superior fleece quality while maintaining soundness and health. Our alpacas continue to do well in shows, including many championships, but our focus has shifted more to the perfect fleeces for our products. They maintain exceptional fineness, excellent uniformity, beautiful crimp, and a staple length that keeps the handspinners knocking on our door.
Thanks to our amazing herdsires, we have now established wonderful density in our herd. A heavier fleece that maintains all the other characteristics, especially uniformity, gives you a lot more bang for your buck when it comes to processing. The yarn from our fleeces are soft, buttery and bright...the kind of product you can't wait to get next to your skin. And all this in a variety of exquisite and sometimes exotic colors. Fiber artists all over the nation are loving our alpaca products.
While each alpaca owner/breeder may have different goals, the alpaca has so many characteristics that lend towards a joyful experience for owners: e.g. the mother/cria bond, the playfulness of the crias (and sometimes the adults!), the calm and gentle demeanor of a contently grazing herd, the bond that we get to experience with them, and the creative side of fiber arts...just to name a few. Furthermore, alpacas are efficient eaters and easy on the environment with an appropriate pasture rotation plan. They are also easy to clean up after and generally require limited husbandry such as nail trims, a hair cut, and of course the yearly shearing. Contact us for more information about our alpacas and alpacas in general. Better yet, come out for a visit and see them in person!
