Welcome to Velvet Hall Alpacas
Based in the Scottish Borders at the heart of the beautiful Tweed Valley. This is where Jean and Stuart began their venture into the world of Alpacas in 2012. Although it has been a steep learning curve, we have been lucky enough to purchase several champion girls to add to our herd, and with their elite genetics we are looking forward to an exciting future. We are already expecting our first cria (baby alpaca) this summer 2014 around June time.
We started as most breeders do with some pet boys, with no intention of breeding, but it’s funny how they get under your skin and you become addicted to them. Our herd genetics boast some of the top UK, Peruvian and Australian lines, Jolimont Rodrigo II, Nytimber, etc.
You can come along and simply meet our Alpacas. Great for those too young to trek or unable to walk long distances. You’ll get to meet and feed the Alpacas (a perfect photo opportunity). All the while learning a little bit about these unique and gentle creatures.
Our Alpaca Treks are tailored from one hour to eight hours depending on group size and ability. Alpacas make ideal companions for trekking for all ages whether it be groups, singles or special occasions and is great fun for families.
With many dates now released for 2014, we can reflect on our achievements and look forward to a full diary of shows and events. We’ll keep you informed of all the UK dates. Read our blog to keep updated with photo’s and news of our fun times ahead.
