Who is PurelyAlpaca?
PurelyAlpaca is a company which started from a picture. We first learned of alpacas in 1998 while looking through a magazine on a business flight. We just loved the LOOK of the animals and wanted to know more. After a couple of years of research we began our first alpaca farm on an island in the Pacific Northwest, near Seattle. Our farm has been very successful in its own right, producing multiple-award winning prize alpacas.
Soon after starting the farm we opened a small farm store showcasing alpaca products to our many farm visitors (we were in a tourist area). The first retail web store was opened in 2002. The demand for quality alpaca products was much higher than anticipated with 100%+ growth per year!
Since the beginning, PurelyAlpaca.com has offers new features, more customer services and a wider collection of quality products. We love this industry and greatly enjoy seeking out new and exciting examples of "wearable art" made with luxurious naturally unique alpaca fiber.
With new designers and manufacturers getting into this exciting industry, alpaca clothing and gift offerings continue to expand at an exciting pace. At PurelyAlpaca.com we will continue to show the latest interesting products created from this exquisite naturally unique fiber.
In 2009, PurelyAlpaca moved to La Jolla, CA. The new La Jolla facility is more modern, easier for shipping products fast and just plain beautiful!
As always, we continue to expand our selection of exciting new alpaca products while also offering classic lines of clothing and gifts. We encourage you to join us in promoting this wonderful fiber and animal!
