Pav & Mark with ChampionsTiaho and Rangatira
Kandiah Suri Alpaca Stud is owned by Pav and Mark Stacey. Their farm is situated just 10 minutes from the wonderful small township of Waipu in Northland New Zealand.
Our herd of suri alpacas has grown dramatically from an initial purchase of suri females and we now have top class herdsires, some of which are available for outside matings.
Here at Kandiah Alpacas our breeding goals are to produce suri alpaca with exceptional fineness, lustre and handle so that the fleeces can be used to produce luxury clothing. Good quality alpaca fibre is amazing and once you have worn it next to your skin you will never go back to products made from sheep's wool. It is particularly suitable for baby clothes and blankets because of it's hypo allergenic qualities.
There are two breeds of alpaca - huacaya and suri. Kandiah Alpacas specialise in breeding the rare suri alpaca that represent only 10% of the world population of alpaca. Suri alpaca have wonderful fleeces with flowing locks that are often described as "curtains of silk". Suri fibre has a wonderful lustre that is especially beautiful in poducts made from natural black fleeces.
We are very proud of our breeding achievements, having produced multiple Supreme Champions. One of these is Kandiah Tiaho who has won no less than 12 broad ribbons. We also have some excellent suri breeding females for sale - both coloured and white.
We always welcome visitors to our farm and hope you will take advantage of our luxury private farmstay accommodation and B&B so that you can really get to know all of our alpacas. We always have a selection of pets and breeding alpaca for sale - ranging from white, through fawn, brown and black. Our accommodation is passive solar and self contained but we really enjoy having our visitors join us for dinner in the main farmhouse.
For a really special unique experience book an alpaca beach walk - we guarantee that you will be talking about it for weeks ! We do not know of anywhere else in the world that you can do this.
