Welcome to Cribleman Suri Alpaca Ranch!

My love of animals began as a child and never waned. As a youngster, my family raised goats. I added horses, cows, chickens, rabbits, and sheep over the years. In the 1980’s I bought my first spinning wheel, but set it aside as life became too busy. Several years ago I was contemplating buying a few sheep again until I became involved in helping a client plan their retirement vision of living on a farm. I introduced them to the possibility of raising alpacas, and I got hooked!
I’m often asked, Why suris? Why don’t you raise huacaya alpacas? Actually, my first alpaca is a lovely silver grey huacaya female. But when I saw the suri and began working around them and handling their fleece, I knew this was the breed I wanted to focus on. I love the silky locks and can imagine the beautiful luster and drape of a hand spun, hand knit sweater. So, yes, I do have huacaya alpacas and truly appreciate their lofty soft fiber, but the majority of our herd is suri.


Early on, I realized the importance of high quality suri and huacaya fiber and have focused the breeding on producing offspring that will retain the fiber quality as they age. I maintain a small herd so I can focus on the care and quality of the individual animals.

Over the years our alpaca ranch has evolved and added a fiber arts studio. Although most of the lovely alpaca fiber is sent to a mill for processing into yarn, some of it is retained for processing here. To that end, I'm able to offer natural fiber as well as hand dyed fiber for hand spinning in the form of batts and roving. Most of the yarn returned from the mill is hand dyed. For knitters, crocheters and weavers, the dye colors can be customized to your needs.

Farm visits are welcome by appointment. Please call or text me for an appointment.
