Our Story

Akelei Alpakas was founded in 2004. Since then we are breeding Alpacas (Suri and Huacayas) and have the largest Suri herd with black and grey animals in South Africa. Their fleece is sheared once a year and processed into fine yarns. These can be used for weaving and knitting fashion such as scarfs, shawls and pullovers. Besides that, we have developed an exclusive range of jewelry, combining alpaca-felt balls with semi-precious stones under the label AFRO-ALPACA-BIJOUX.
