Alpaca farm in winter

We are located on a beautiful eight acre setting in the Township of Nipigon in the Province of Ontario, Canada.

GREAT NORTHERN PINES ALPACA RANCH is an independent Ontario alpaca fibre source. We took up alpacas for their wonderful fleece, not to mention their calm temperament, and the simplicity of farming alpacas. Their luxurious natural fibre is light, strong, soft and warm, and it comes in 22 natural colours, from a true rich black, through chocolate brown and russet, as well as various shades of grey, honey and fawn, to a light champagne and finally pure white. It also holds dye very well, which makes alpaca fibre ideal for organic or hypoallergenic clothing and fashion, from hats to gloves, jumpers and scarves or scarfs. Alpaca fibre is an untreated natural fabric, making it ideal for people with allergies and sensitive skin. Our website offers a wealth of information on alpaca breeding, alpaca fleeces and alpaca yarns. We also offer links for information on luxury knitwear - designer knitwear - alpaca clothing and knitwear - as well as alpaca fur toy animals.

For the discerning purchaser looking for the latest in fashionable, functional alpaca clothing and accessories, please check out our Alpaca Gift Boutique. Here you will find a wide variety of Alpaca products.  Alpaca fibre is soft, supple, strong, resilient, and offers 22 natural colours.  It is also six times warmer than sheep's wool without the weight or 'itch' factor of wool; thus it is very comfortable next to the skin. It is lanolin free and hypoallergenic. We will be true fibre artisans as we are expanding our knowledge into the fields of spinning, weaving, dyeing, machine knitting, and dry, wet, and laminate felting ensures that all our products are of the highest quality and workmanship. The majority of our items in the Gift Boutique are locally made in Nipigon by talented artisans. We pride outselves on keeping current with the latest trends and techniques to ensure new and exciting products are available.

       These rugs can be felted or left as is. Felted they are a wonderful fuzzy rug that keep your feet warm and cozy.
