Starshire Ranch began in 2007 with Merino and Targhee sheep. As a spinner and knitter I love exploring new fibers. In 2010 we added four pregnant alpacas. Our experience with fiber and animal husbandry made owning alpacas a natural transition. We love each fiber for its own qualities but also appreciate the luxury of blending Merino and alpaca together.
We soon began showing alpacas and focusing on our breeding program as well. We breed for low micron, uniform fleeces as well as superior conformation and calm temperament.
Want to learn more about fiber and/or breeding? We offer support before and after the sale, support in husbandry practices, for both sheep and alpacas, as well as support in training, breeding and business needs.
