Inti Alpacas offers quality and value in a range of prices. Whether you are looking for your first alpaca, or need to add specific traits to an established herd, we can help you choose the right alpaca for you.
Fiber is the future of the alpaca business, and alpacas with fine fiber - that stays fine as the years go by - will hold their value. This is the goal of the Inti breeding program.
The preferred color of the international fiber market is white, so this is our primary focus. However, a select few alpacas in fawn, brown, grey, and black are also available!
Whatever colors you are breeding for, using superb whites will help you to breed alpacas of lasting quality and value.
Newborn Mister Maverick cria.
Fabulous fiber is what alpacas are all about! Take a couple of these males home for your own private source of luxury fiber. (As herd animals, you must have at least two.) Harvest the wonderful fleece each spring and enjoy making your alpaca's fiber into something special. Or you can have it made into an heirloom for yourself or a loved one.
Few things are as relaxing as watching alpacas peacefully graze. They will help keep your grass mown, and fertilized, too!
If you like, take them for walks. Children can enter showmanship or obstacle courses at the shows with their alpacas. Most alpacas respond to children even better than they do to adults, and children can learn valuable lessons about responsibility and respect for other creatures by caring for alpacas.
Now available: pure white, light fawn, medium fawn, 'dark chocolate' brown, true black or grey! See photos at right for a few of the fiber males ready to go.

Inti has teamed up with area farms to offer fiber males from top award winning bloodlines. These are QUALITY alpacas, but not quite good enough to meet our tough standards for breeding males.
About the fiber: Fineness: let us know the micron range you are looking for. Approx 20-22.9 'Baby', 23-25 'Fine', or 25+ microns. These males are mostly baby or fine grade.
'Baby' grade is a joy to spin, and is also wonderful stuff for garments worn next to the skin. 'Fine' fiber in the 23-25 micron range is preferred outerwear and socks. Grade four fiber (with little guard hair) makes long wearing socks. Coarser grade fiber makes beautiful rugs that hold up to daily use.
All grades are estimated; samples can be supplied, or come see the boys!
Handle: 'cottony' soft to silky in feel.
Crimp: ranges from very defined 6+ crimps per inch in fawns and whites, to more of a 'crinkle' style. We'll be glad to send you photos of a sample.
Brightness: varies from average to incredibly bright, with a sheen similar to silk.
Density/yield: ranges from moderate to well above average. Call for details on what is available in the colors you are looking for.
Age: from 6 months to 3 yrs old. When poperly fed (not overfed)geldings should hold their fiber fineness for many years.
NOTE: these males are being sold as fiber producing alpacas, NOT for breeding. Some are castrated, some are still intact.
*Purchase price of a fiber male can be applied toward the future purchase of breeding stock.

Facilities for alpacas need not be fancy. A three sided shed opening on the south to a paddock to provide shelter from wind and rain works well. An acre or two of good grass will provide more than enough grazing for several alpacas, especially if it is divided to allow one area to recover while they use the other area. Simple woven wire on metal 'T' posts will keep alpacas in and dogs out. A strand of electrified wire around the top and bottom on the outside of the fence will deter most predators.
In the winter, an average bale of hay will feed each alpaca about a week. Some hay should also be available in the summer. Provide minerals and water year around. A cup or so of bagged feed per day can also be given, depending on the quality of the available forage and the needs of the alpaca, but non-breeding males may not need the extra protein or calories.
