THINKING GLOBALLY, SELLING LOCALLY
Hummingbird Hill Alpacas is a small business in every sense of the word. In 2009, we moved to Charles City, Virginia and thought about raising cattle. At the last minute, we changed our minds and decided to buy a herd of alpacas. We fell in love with our new brood. After careful research, we realized the great demand for products made from the lightweight, hypoallergenic and water-repellent features of alpaca fiber. Our customers are those who are truly in tune with Mother Nature, and appreciate any product created from natural origins. We offer items that are warm, soft, and
eco-friendly. Located near the Charles City Courthouse and the Capital Bike Trail, we're always open for farm tours and sales! Just call ahead at 757-291-6160.
WHO WE ARE
ALL ABOUT ALPACA FIBER
UNIQUE ITEMS FOR EVERYONE
Hummingbird Hill Alpacas Farm Store is your place for the warmth
and softness of outerwear and apparel created by the Incas. We offer a wide selection of socks, hats, scarves, gloves, yarns and stuffed animals which are not available in department stores. Our products are made only from natural fibers that today's Earth-friendly consumer demands.
The natural fiber harvested from an alpaca is light or heavy in weight, depending on
how it is spun. It is soft, durable, luxurious and silky— similar in consistency to sheep's wool, consistency to sheep's wool, but much warmer. Because the fiber shorn from the alpaca contains no lanolin, and lacks the course and abrasive outer shell found in sheep's wool fiber, it is hypoallergenic, naturally water-repellent and difficult to ignite. It is made into various products, from very simple and inexpensive garments made by indigenous communities– to sophisticated, industrially made and expensive products such as high end suits. In the United States, groups of smaller alpaca breeders have banded together to create ‘fiber co-ops,’ making the manufacture of alpaca fiber products less expensive. Think globally, and buy locally!
