Alpaca Breeder | Alpacas for Sale | Alpaca Wool, Yarn, Fiber, Fleece & More!

 

AlAnn Ranch is an Ash Fork alpaca and Angora goat breeder in northern Arizona, USA. We breed hardy, genetically diverse alpacas that thrive in our rugged northern Arizona mountain climate. We sell breeding stock, companion and pet alpacas, Great Pyrenees livestock guardian dogs (LGDs), fiber (natural animal wools) and fiber products both machined and handmade. We maintain a small herd of Angora (mohair) goats for wool and food, as well as a flock of chickens and Muscovy ducks for eggs and food. Our alpacas can be seen at AlpacaStreet.com, AlpacaNation.com, and OpenHerd.com. Like us on Facebook/AlAnnRanch.com.

We use Scott Dontanville (scottdontanville@gmail.com) of New West Shearing to shear our animals annually and sell the fleece as raw fiber, roving, bats, yarns, blankets and rugs, clothing and home decor. We also shear our goats. All our fiber is used, some for hand-spinning and knitting or crocheting, some as rug yarn or batts for quilting and such. The mohair is sometimes blended with the alpaca for unique and lustrous yarns and rovings. Part of our alpaca and mohair is hand processed -- we card, spin, ply, weave, knit, crochet, tat, felt and sew items for sale. We also send some alpaca and mohair fleece out to different mills for processing into different types of fiber products. Arizona Fiber Mill (rita@arizonafibermill.com) in Prescott Valley, AZ is our preferred mill. Everything we sell is Arizona Grown (as certified by the Arizona Department of Agriculture) and USA made.

The last full weekend in April every year is Shearing and we invite people from around Arizona, the region, and even from several states away. We provide camping with amenities in the beautiful northern Arizona juniper forest, provide some accommodations and showers, feed everybody, and have a large BBQ party Saturday night. After cleanup on Sunday, generally everyone but family leaves for parts North, West or East. This annual shearing provides our raw fiber product.

We usually attend at least one trade show a year (Fiber and Wool Festival at Flagstaff) -- setting up our booth, bringing animals to share, educating the public, and selling our hand and machine made products to the public. We also participate in National Alpaca Farm and Ranch Days, and Thanksgiving and Christmas Farm Boutiques. We host a "Fun Fiber Field Trip" for the children of the Yavapai-Prescott Indian Tribe during the Summer.

Visitors are welcome on an appointment basis. Ann is a Certified Sorter (tm) with the Natural Fiber Producers Co-operative; a member of the New England Alpaca Fiber Producers (NEAFP). She can often be found at Arizona ranches sorting during their shearings in March, April and May each year.

AlAnn Ranch Alpacas is a member of Alpaca Breeders of Arizona, Alpaca Owners and Breeders Association (national), the Alpaca Registry and supports the annual SouthWest Regional Alpaca Show in Phoenix, and the Alpaca Blanket Project.
