It was in 2009 that we fell in love with alpacas. The idea of enjoying the great outdoors, rubbing shoulders with animals, learning to raise them to harvest a renewable natural material in an ecological way ... so many elements that we wanted to experience and share with our children!
Although our project was initially seen as a rather original hobby, La vie en alpaga has become, over the years, a real passion as well as a small business. About forty alpacas live peacefully on the family farm in Beloeil. We offer an observation area as well as interpretation tours. A shop is set up on site.
If 2020 led to the suspension of our animation activities on the farm, it has finally given us the opportunity to launch our virtual store! You can now shop with us, without leaving your home!
This is how you will find, from the local transformation of the fleeces of our alpacas, carded fiber (ideal for artisanal spinning) and knitting yarns (of various sizes and compositions) for your own creations, pom poms of fur to decorate them and delicate laundry soap to pamper them.
Thanks to our precious collaborations with craftswomen around us, we also offer shawls, scarves, toques, neck warmers and other ready-to-wear accessories, made by crochet, knitting or weaving, as well as popular felted products such as dryer balls. , insoles and soaps.
Finally, it is always a pleasure for us to talk to you or meet with you to clarify your needs or to offer you items that are not yet on the website, particularly raw fleeces, that you could get in a range of natural colors.
