BEHIND THE BRAND
Alpaca South carries a unique collection of beautifully crafted alpaca products and is part of Wharncliffe Alpaca Stud.
Founder Alison Brolsma encountered alpacas for the first time at the Huon show in 1994 and has been absorbed by both the alpacas themselves and the challenge of developing the beautiful fleece they yield ever since.
Now Tasmania’s longest-established specialist breeder of black huacaya alpacas, Alison works with local artisans and crafters to produce one-of-a-kind, quality alpaca products, lovingly created for Alpaca South.
"I am lucky enough to have my beautiful alpacas right outside my window and I can tell you the name of the alpaca that grew the yarn you’re about to buy. So much love, care and attention goes into every product we sell at Alpaca South, starting with breeding healthy happy alpacas here at Wharncliffe Stud, through to the creation of these beautiful, luxuriously soft products by our local artisans and crafters that we are fortunate to have as our neighbours and friends. We hope you’ll cherish your alpaca products as much as we do"
