Realizing that the sustainable portion of alpaca farming is not only in breeding but in developing a strong fiber market as well. We decided that we needed to learn all aspects of alpaca farming including fiber processing.
We are currently processing our own fiber We skirt, wash, card & comb to produce lovely batts/tops for spinning or felting. We believe a hands on experience is the best way for us to help promote & educate the public & our clients about this unique fiber we like to refer to as nature's luxury fiber. We certainly have gained a profound appreciation for the the fiber itself that we don't think we would've gotten any other way.
Welcome to Shimmering Pond Farm Alpacas. We are nestled on a sunny hillside in Vermont overlooking our lovely pond with beautiful views of the green mountains.
We love taking care & working with our alpacas everyday. Our intentions are to stay small so we may give each of our alpacas one on one care as well as personalized care to our clients.
Our farm store is stocked with fiber that has been processed and ready for spinning or felting. We have needle felting kits, handspun yarn, felted insoles, rug yarn, handwoven rugs, washed fiber, needle felted pieces and much more.
Our alpacas have some great bloodlines, including lines from the Jolimont Ranch in Australia and Mountain Meadow Ranch (MMR) in Canada. MMR Marcoyo, MMR Antonio, Jolimont 2 Peruvian Alpamayo.
Other great bloodlines include Victor's Vaccoyo, Qolmesa Rafael, Qolmesa Rachelle, Qolmesa Seville, Spring Pond Brigadier, Royal Peruvian Apollo & PCA Accoyo El Nino.
Our breeding program focuses on creating healthy alpacas with good conformation, luxurious fiber, and sweet natured temperaments in a range of colors.
