Suri alpaca have captivated us with their enthralling behaviour, their incredibly soft and lustrous fibre, their gentle natures and their relatively low maintrenance requirements. Our journey with alpacas began in 2006 and has grown from then. The emphasis at Te Kowhai Alpacas is on breeding high quality animals to produce high quality fleece. To achieve this our emphasis is on using "Superior Sires" and building a suri breeding herd based on "Dams of Distinction".
