About Us

DAFI Alpacas, Maryland’s first alpaca breeder, is proud to offer Maryland fiber artisans, knitters and weavers quality fleece, roving and custom spun yarns. We also have a limited supply of fine alpaca products from socks to sweaters for the discriminating customer, and for your home, we offer beautiful hand woven rugs made with renewable, natural alpaca fiber.

Since 1993, DAFI Alpacas has worked to support the growth of alpaca farming in Maryland, engage and inform the public about the wonderful qualities of alpaca fiber and to be a reliable source of alpacas and alpaca products.

We currently have an abundant supply of yarns from our alpacas raised in Baltimore County and custom spun locally. Our alpaca socks, hats, gloves and unique sweaters make wonderful gifts for that “special someone” – Remember Mother’s day is coming up!

We are now in the process of shearing for spring 2021. If you are interested in raw fleece, please contact us immediately. Our herd is small, but we are able to offer a wide variety of natural fleece colors.
Please visit our website or Facebook page, DAFI Alpacas, for up-to-date information, and feel free to contact us directly with any questions or to purchase our alpaca products.

DAFI Alpacas has been an enthusiastic participant in the Maryland Sheep and Wool Festival since 1994, and we look forward to seeing you all in person in 2022.
