We offer mainly suris of various ages and colours.

The females are usually sold pregnant to one of our own stud males and so are often over two years old. We also sell stud males and castrated or non-breeding males for pets or companions. No crias are sold unless with their mothers.

Alpacas are herd animals and so you must keep an absolute minimum of two of the same sex.

People usually choose a small group to start their herd; often three pregnant females, some with crias already. There is no need to have your own male for mating until your herd has grown. We will bring our own males to you for mating and you will pay a mating fee. See Stud Males & Breeding for more information.

How to choose 

We will help you to make your choice and to make sure you get the sort of alpacas you want, at the price you want to pay.

Hilary Shenton, a qualified BAS Judge will give you her expert, honest and objective advice, and definitely no hard sell. She will tell you the qualities of each alpaca, and help you make an informed choice, whether your interest is in breeding a high value herd, producing fleece or just having alpacas as pets. 

When you buy alpacas from Zarza you will receive:

  • Alpacas that are fully registered with the British Alpaca Society (BAS)
  • Full genetic information on each alpaca from the BAS, the most complete registry in Europe
  • Full medical history of each alpaca
  • A veterinary certificate of health within two weeks of delivery.
  • A free mating if any pregnancy is lost
  • Training in the care and management of your alpacas
  • Continuing support to ensure you can manage your alpacas successfully

Importation from UK

Working closely with colleagues in England we can offer white and a range of colours of good quality pure suris and huacayas. We regularly import from England to Italy and so you can reserve your alpacas by reviewing photographs, genetic and health information and use our expert advice to build your herd.


If in the future you wish to sell any of your alpacas we can help by introducing you to people who may wish to buy them!
