Cushy Alpacas is located on beautiful Lake St. John just 15 miles north of Ferriday, LA.

Alpacas are rare and gentle animals adaptable to varied habitat, which have been domesticated for over 5,000 years. Clean, safe, quiet, intelligent and disease resistant, they have a charismatic manner, do very well on small acreage, and produce a luxury fiber that is in high demand.

What's so special about alpaca fiber?

Alpaca fleece is softer than cashmere, warmer than wool, and stronger fiber than both.Recognized worldwide as one of the most luxurious natural fibers, and coveted by the fashion industry, alpaca fleece fetches high prices in the market, and is softer than cashmere, warmer than wool, and a stronger fiber than both. It is used in household items like blankets, rugs and upholstery, also.

Alpaca fleece has 22 recognized natural colors, ranging from pure white to browns and grays and black. Alpacas can have a uniform color or have a pinto fleece in two or more colors. 

The fiber is sheered once a year and can give up to 12 pounds of fiber with an exquisite softness. Due to selective breeding, American fiber is getting finer and finer, and Alpaca fleece has a sheen that is frequently compared to silk. 

Alpacas are gentle and docile herd animals by nature and are happiest when in the company of other alpacas. Although they don't enjoy being petted, like dogs, they do like to hang out with their human owners just outside of arms reach. They are easily trained to lead and are gentle enough to be handled by children. They do not bite or butt and they do not have teeth, horns, hooves, or claws that do serious injury.

Alpacas communicate to each other with a soft, low humming sound in a variety of situations, such as when they are separated from the mother or the herd, when the female is about to give birth, and when they are happy and there is no apparent reason to communicate. The mothers have a clucking sound to call their babies. And there is a very high intensity call (a screech) when there is danger, at which the herd runs and huddles together. The males make a clucking sound to attract the attention of a female. And during breeding, the males make a "chortling" sound.
