Here at Korpoströms Gård, we’ve been breeding alpacas since 2012. We sell raw fleece and yarn while supplies last, and also arrange various activities and visits to the animals. Any alpacas we have for sale are advertised on our Facebook page.

Quite simply because you feel good from having alpacas around you. The discreet humming of alpacas is soothing to the soul. When you get up-close with the animals – close enough to look into their eyes – you are forever captivated – infatuated, enthralled and enamoured, even bewitched, to quote Anne Marie Santesson Gerber from Old Mölle Farm in Skåne.
Alpacas are very diverse animals – they can be used in landscaping as grazing animals, in healthcare as therapy animals and for other animal-assisted activities, for instance in tourism. They provide several kilos of luscious wool every year – wool that you can spin yourself, felt or spin in a machine for selling.
The animals originate from the mountains of South America, where they were domesticated approximately 9,000 years ago. The first animals were imported to Finland in the early 2000s from Peru and Europe.
