Frank & Anya Walkington with Rising Sun
Our farm is located in Banks Peninsula overlooking Akaroa harbour where we farm alpacas for genetic improvement and for their unique fleece. We have a herd of over 125 alpacas.
We harvest fleece from our own herd and collect fleece from selected New Zealand and Australian breeders to meet the quality we require for producing our knitwear.
Alpaca is one of the rare natural fibres of the world and is valued for its beauty and warm silky softness. It grows in a range of 22 natural colours, is environmentally friendly, sustainable and hypoallergenic.
Our knitwear is made from 100% dye free alpaca fleece in a range of rich, natural colours and is100% NZ made.
