My sister Rachel, myself and our two children Finn and Molly visited whynotalpacas on 30/07/15 and although they were not really open to the public, Caroline was really great, friendly, informative and accommodating. Her beautiful alpacas really captured all our hearts, particularly the gorgeous crias. We really loved the fact that products made from their own alpacas had a photo of the animal concerned attached to them, it gives the history and provenance and marks them out from other companies! It was a really special time on our Cumbrian holiday and it will stay with us forever. Thank you so much, and good luck with all your alpaca adventures!

Thank you so much to Robin and Caroline for their hospitality & advice when it came to buying two of my four alpacas from them. The boys have been well trained and I'm able to lead them easily - I look forward to many happy alpaca adventures with them!

Having been inspired by alpacas on a visit to a country show a couple of years ago, it was always my intention to see more of them.
A little bit of Internet research pointed me in the direction of WHY NOT ALPACAS, this being the closest to where I live. Sat nav directions took us right to the door, very useful as the only sign was right at the gate, and being quite small, we could have missed it altogether.
Anyway if you want an unforgettable experience pay them a visit, you won't be disappointed.
Robin, the extremely informative owner of these adorable animals couldn't have been more welcoming, even though we arrived unexpectedly, and without hesitation, happily introduced us to the herd.
The sight of around nine newly shorn little alpacas running to greet us couldn't help but put a smile on your face. The little tuft of fleece left on the top of their head makes them look quite comical, but it's left there for a reason!! Go and find out for yourselves.
Up to the higher paddock where the females roam freely, and give birth virtually unaided, we were able to observe a cria (baby) newly born that morning. The views of the surrounding countryside are sensational and on a sunny day, it was a magical experience not to be missed.
We went on the off chance of seeing some nice little animals but left totally smitten and looking forward to making an adoption on our next visit. The products from the fleece are available to buy as well, a beautiful souvenir or gift.
Robin indicated that we'd be most welcome anytime but a phone call before would be appreciated. Robins hospitality is second to none, it may have been OUR first visit, it won't be our last.
Imagine something wonderful, multiply it by 10, you're close to understanding the attraction of alpacas.

My mother bought me a couple of pairs of your socks for Christmas, but I have to confess that temptation got the better of me and I succumbed to trying out the smaller, cushioned pair somewhat early. WOW! They are the toastiest socks on the planet! So much so they haven't been off my my feet since. Many thanks to you and your alpacas for making my feet so very warm in such cold weather - and I can't wait to unwrap the other pair on chrimbo day.

Recently purchased a pair of your cushion soled walking socks and I must say I'm thoroughly delighted. The one thing I was surprised about was just how springy they are, even after several washes!!! A joy to wear. I'll be placing my Christmas order with you directly. The family won't know what a treat awaits them!
