Helderstroom Alpacas is a beautiful farm in the Cape Overberg region of the Western Cape, home to dozens of adorable alpacas. Bearing resemblance to llamas, alpacas are fascinating to watch, loved by young and old alike. The base of this herd was originally from Chile.
At Helderstroom, visitors are invited to touch, feed and interact with these fascinating animals. Their gentle natures and sweet antics endear them to just about everyone that visits the farm. Their wool is considered to be one of the most eco-friendly materials available, and is used to produce gorgeous clothing and luxurious goods for the home.
The Helderstroom Farm shears their own animals and has facilities to spin and weave the wool too. This means that stunning pieces are produced on site and are available for visitors to purchase. Goods include scarves, hats, jerseys, ponchos, babies’ clothing, bags, cushions, jackets, and more.
Not only is it a delight to experience these South American animals up close, but the products made from their wool make for fantastic gifts for friends, or for yourself! Helderstroom is set within the magnificent landscapes of the Western Cape, making a visit here extra special.
