ALPACAS FROM ABOLENGO DE ALPACA – WHEN VISIONS BECOME REALITY

Our immediate love and enthusiasm for alpacas has made us start with the first breeding in the year 2005. In the beginning, we kept our Huacayas on a small leasehold farm in Velbert-Langenberg. What had started with a vision has developed into a real heart project. Surrounded by lush green meadows and tall, sturdy trees, we are now living with our animals on the centuries-old farmstead Gut Aldenhövel, situated right at the gates of Münster. Almost 100 alpacas enjoy their open stable husbandry on eight hectares of pasture.

Abolengo de Alpaca – farm life with alpacas

With all our hearts and deep passion, we have been breeding alpacas since 2005. We are sharing our farm and our lives with these impressive animals. Because of them, we have numerous friendships and great business partners who support our alpaca breeding with commitment from all over the world. For us, the South American Andes – the area of origin of alpacas – are especially important. We are supporting many social projects in Peru, and throughout the years, we have met great people and created beautiful products.

We attach great importance to health, well-being, as well as to the quality of our herd of about 100 alpacas. The extraordinary fleece is mainly processed into alpaca quilted duvets. To differentiate ourselves from our competitors, we only use the finest, cleanest alpaca fleece. We promise a fantastic bedding climate.

On our farm, we keep alpacas with well-known pedigrees from internationally recognized breeds. Our mares come from Peru and other parts of South America as well as from valuable breeds in the Netherlands, the UK, and Switzerland.

As for the breeding, we are not interested in reproduction, but targeted quality improvement and the maintenance of healthy genes.

Alpaca breeding – focusing the animal

Healthy animals require excellent genetics. For this reason, we are committed to first-class premium breeding. Our breeding studs are from all over the world, and our alpaca broodmares are also awarded by the AZVD.

Excellent genetics are also reflected in our alpaca offspring. Regularly we have animals for sale, and we are pleased about a large number of satisfied customers who are receiving awards with our former alpacas.

The duvets from Abolengo de Alpaca have an excellent temperature balance as they can save heat without causing a heat accumulation while being very light in weight. Because alpaca does not contain lanolin, our blankets are also suitable for allergy sufferers. We only use first quality for our duvets, because the finer the alpaca fleece, the better the positive characteristics of the duvet. Our cover made of high-quality cotton batiste further enhances our duvet, making it an authentic luxury product. Here you can find out more about our duvets.

Alpaca especially suitable for allergy sufferers

Formerly, alpacas come from the South American Andes. However, these gentle animals meanwhile are also conquering the European region and are also feeling very comfortable, especially in Germany. These good-natured animals are also used as therapy animals as they transmit their calm and gentle nature to others. Another admirable characteristic of these animals is the fact that they can balance extreme temperature fluctuations mainly using their fleece, which has particularly useful thermal properties. Because of their very fine and smooth hair, the fleece is very climate regulating, meaning that there is no heat build-up nor loss of heat, and it also controls the moisture. Moreover, a great benefit of alpaca hair is that it contains only very little lanolin, i.e., hardly any wool grease, in contrast to sheep’s wool, which means that no dirt particles or bacterial impurities can adhere to it. This is a unique alternative for allergy sufferers in particular, which is also beneficial to your health. Because of these unique properties of the fleece, it is no surprise that we, too, make use of these benefits.

Cuddly blankets and duvets made of alpaca fleece

As this material is climate regulating, breathable, and self-cleaning, it is perfectly suitable for duvets and woolen blankets. Especially blankets made of this fabric are not scratchy and feel pleasantly soft and cuddly on the skin. Duvets and pillows with alpaca filling are just perfect for a pleasant and balanced sleeping climate, as they ensure that you do not sweat nor freeze.

Alpaca duvet

We have been producing our alpaca duvet for several years now. Right after we have started, we realized that for us, only the use of high-quality baby alpaca fleece can be considered. This is because of the better the alpaca fleece, the better, the following properties of the duvet. Therefore we decided to differentiate ourselves from the competitors and to only use the best alpaca fleece. Thus, our duvet cannot be compared with the usual alpaca quilts. You can feel this from the first touch and, most of all, when sleeping under it. The sleeping climate of our duvet is excellent and is without equal.
