The Island Alpaca Co. gift shop offers a large variety of quality alpaca products and luxurious garments, many crafted from yarn made from the fleece of their own alpaca. Island Alpaca annually shears their herd, producing an average yield of six to seven pounds of durable and beautiful fiber that is transformed into the garments and yarns available at the farm store. Island Alpaca products range from hats, mittens, gloves, blankets, scarves, slippers, socks, and jackets to sweaters, hats, toys and gifts, and more — all as soft as cashmere and warmer, lighter, and stronger than wool. Alpaca is hypoallergenic, soft, and fine — the ultimate in thermal insulation, with moisture-absorbing properties, strength, and elasticity. Be sure to visit Island Alpaca, now in its eighth year, and meet the gentle, playful animals that produce this wonderful byproduct.
