Summer Solstice Alpacas

Defining Natural Suri Elegance

Summer Solstice was started several months after a typical weekend tandem bike ride with our bicycle group. As we were half way along our destination we came across a farm day event. Our entire group was game and spent the next hour visiting with all the alpaca breeders that were present and watching a new cria learn to take her first steps. We had one of those “ahha” moments after seeing a full fleece Suri running through the field, and that evening we were on the computer starting our research into the alpaca industry.

After several months of constant reading about these gorgeous animals, their care and fiber we decided we had to try our hands at urban farming and purchased our first animal on February 29, 2008. As active outdoor people, we have found this is a way to get us moving out toward the country and away from city/urban life. Although presently we have careers that are keeping us tied to city life, our ambition has been to slowly leave that behind us.

We are continually working to define elegance in colored Suris through our breeding program by improving fiber and working with desired genetics such as: PVA Mahogony Prince, Fruzane Noir, Belmonte, Sweet Foxfire JAX, Peruvian Maverick, Arizona Sage, Outlaw JAX, Black Icon, Prince Graystone, Renzo and Sergeant Major JAX.

We pride ourselves on developing relationships with others in the industry. We provide customer support anytime of the day and will help you if you want to become an urban farmer. You never know how meeting your first alpaca will change your life, it sure changed ours!

We also carry rovings, yarns, handspun yarns, rug yarn, hand crafted scarves and hats. Call or email us and we can discuss our products that fit your crafting, gift or just buying for yourself needs!
