UK Alpaca is a family business run by Chas Brooke and Rachel Hebditch from their farm in Devon. They have 100 pedigree alpacas on farm and buy fleece clips from over 120 other alpaca farms in the UK. The fleece is hand graded and classed by them on their farm before being sent for processing to their yarn specifications in and around the Yorkshire Area.
