Welcome to the wonderful world of the elegant and rare suri alpaca!
Only 7% of the world’s alpaca population is suri. The graceful suri is a separate breed from the more common huacaya alpaca. The main difference between the two alpaca breeds is the fleece or coat type. Both fleece types are soft and luxurious. The huacaya has a full, puffy, teddy bear coat while the fiber of the suri hangs in lustrous locks, giving the suri a sleek, “dreadlock” appearance. Suri fleece characteristics are very distinct. Luster in a quality suri fleece will sparkle in the sunlight and give the appearance of being wet. It will feel cool and slippery to the touch. The independence of lock allows the suri fleece to swing freely when the animal is in motion.
Our goal at Tully Mountain Suris is to breed healthy and correct suri alpacas with strong suri phenotype. We utilize only suri alpacas to produce suri offspring. Our plan selects for the finest suri characteristics, conformation and temperament, regardless of country of origin. This outcross breeding philosophy maximizes the genetic diversity of a very small gene pool available for suri breeders in this country.
