Wisdom of the Fox Alpacas

Quietly Creating Quality

Suri and huacaya alpacas, fleece, roving, yarn, and finished products

The rugged Shawnee Hills of southern Illinois are home to a beautiful farm that quietly creates quality suri and huacaya alpacas and produces consistently fine fiber.

Welcome to Wisdom of the Fox Alpacas.

Well Balanced Herd

We’re focusing on raising a well-balanced herd of quality animals and our dedication shows in our herd’s excellent genetics, fleece and conformation.

Fine Fiber

We’re proud to have received tangible recognition of our effort to raise animals with excellent fleece. Several of our animals have received significant fleece show wins:

  • SSRMT Nevada was Judge’s Choice (over 108 other entries) in the 2010 Suri Network Spin-Off Competition. 
  • WFAM Fire and Ice was Reserve Color Champion at the 2010 Suri Network Fleece Show.
  • SSRMT Junebug received the high score in her color group in the 2008 Suri Network Spin-Off competition.
  • WFAM Slip Stream took the Brown Color Championship at the 2007 Suri Network Fleece Show and was Reserve Color Champion at the 2007 Ohio Alpacafest.
