Alpaca Creations
Southern Alpacas are proud to offer lovely alpaca products from garments to footwear and everything in between. Treat yourself to the warmth and softness of alpaca.

Most of our products are made in New Zealand, from the wide range of naturally occurring alpaca colours, to a high standard of craftsmanship.

Most articles are made from fibre from our award-winning alpaca herd. The fleece is selected, shorn, and hand cleaned to quality standards. We do not use chemicals in the production and cleaning of this fibre.

The one-off garments are all individually hand crafted and we are pleased to support our hand crafters by offering their products for sale.

We have gift vouchers - tell us what you want to spend and we will make up a voucher for you to give as a present.

You can pay at our secure site by credit card, or, within New Zealand, by cheque.
We will add the post and packing charge which varies with your location and the weight and size of your order.
Post and packing
