Nemuno alpakos is a family business that respects traditions, values craftsmanship and believes in the future of natural fibers.
Our story began back in 2013, when we got interested in alpacas and three females came to our homestead near the Nemunas river, Lithuania. We were instantly fascinated by their fiber and its natural colors. Step by step we learned how to shear, sort and process it. Alpaca breeding and their fiber have become an inseparable part of our lives.
Since 2014 we have been offering alpaca yarn - both handspun and machine-spun - for knitting gourmets. After some time alpaca blankets and felt were added to our product asortment. We have recently begun dyeing yarns with local plants too.
Our products are available in this e-shop, on our farm (preferably by appointment in advance) and at some fairs.
