The History

In 2007, Legendary Alpacas of Texas began with the purchase of five alpacas. When choosing their alpacas, the owners mainly concentrated on quality genetics and seed stock. Over the ensuing thirteen years, they have grown their herd to over 60 alpacas. Later on, they added horses, turkeys, chickens, and ducks to really round out the farm. Now, they continue to focus on show stock while also highlighting amazing alpaca fiber products in their alpaca store.A series of colorful material wraps are made of alpaca fiber.
