Blair and Lee Anne Timmerman started Solar T's Alpaca Ranch in 1998, with the purchase of our first 2 maidens. We were located in Colorado at that time, and had just built our passive solar home. This was the inspiration for our ranch name. We added the mill services in 2000. We moved all of our operations to Newberg, Oregon in 2001. We have always focused on the fleece, even in the early days, when we were pretty much alone in our philosophy. Over the years, we have improved the fineness, crimp, and fleece weights through thoughtful breeding. Our herd represents top genetics of both East and West. In addition, we have been able to maintain longevity of fleece characteristics over the lifetime of our alpacas. Though, we may be known for our yarn production, our alpacas represent quality that can improve anyone's herd. We are producing color with microns consistently below 20. We also strive to keep our CV and SD below 5 and 20. This results in handle that makes our yarns so touchable. We also feel that education is an important part of our industry. So we volunteer regularly to teach classes on fiber preparation, spinning, knitting, and basic animal husbandry. We invite new breeders to call or visit with their fiber and alpaca questions.
We also breed LGD, Great Pyrenees, for protecting your herd. We only have one litter per year, so call or email if you are interested. Both mother and father are pure bred and are on the farm.
