Butterfield Alpaca Ranch is nestled in the rolling hills of south central Nebraska near the Harlan County Reservoir. With a focus on the luxury fiber produced by these elegant and graceful animals, we raise both the Hucaya and Suri alpaca breeds. Our stores carry items made from our own herd's fiber and other American alpacas. There is something for everyone - from the fashionista to the fiber artist. We are proud members of the Alpaca Owners Association, working to improve the quality of American alpaca fiber products.

Alpacas are unique and intriguing animals. Visit our growing database of videos and articles to learn more about raising alpacas and the qualities of their elite fiber.

Our online store features products made of American Alpaca - grown and crafted in the USA. Including a growing selection of exquisite American alpaca yarn.
