Our Partners & Associations
AOA’s primary purpose is to promote awareness of alpacas and alpaca products, while maintaining an official DNA validated genealogical registry system, administering an alpaca show system, providing education to members and the public about the operation of sustainable alpaca businesses, marketing alpacas and the use of alpaca products, and promoting scientific research to the benefit of the alpaca industry.
The SURI NETWORK has been devoted to the “Preservation of the Suri Phenotype – Fiber and Alpaca” since its inception with the development and implementation of various programs as a service to its membership and for Suri owners worldwide. These programs are encompassed in the Suri Herd Improvement Program, titled as S.H.I.P.
ALTERA has provided the basis for the first significant improvement in base layer performance in two decades with the introduction of High Performance Alpaca Fiber Technology (HPAFT). The legendary softness and unique thermal and comfort properties of the alpaca fiber make the rarity and time intensive gathering of the raw materials from our network of small domestic alpaca farmers worth the effort.
The Alpaca Breeders of the Rockies is an organization of volunteers capable of leading and influencing the future of the alpaca industry by supporting its members through education, marketing, events, and public awareness. ABR is dedicated to promoting ethical conduct in the alpaca industry, to enhancing the public’s perception of the industry, to the health and welfare of the alpacas, to the long-term well-being of the market, and to being an active voice for its members throughout the industry, all for the purpose of helping our members succeed
Free Seminars, Fiber and Alpaca Demonstrations, Top vendors and
participating Alpaca farms are all part of the experience.
