Alpaca fibre is beautifully soft and cosy, perfect for attracting birds to your garden for nesting material.
This popular package includes a standard size green Alpaca fibre holder and also a cotton bag refill both are filled with beautiful Alpaca fibre.
While Alpaca fibre is similar to sheep’s wool, it is warmer, smoother, not prickly, and has no lanolin, which makes it hypoallergenic.
Alpaca fibre is naturally water-repellent and very easy for birds to make into cosy nests.
Put your Alpaca Fibre in your garden from as early as February to attract nesting birds to your garden. Then sit back and enjoy watching them.
You can then reuse the holder for fat balls for your birds afterwards.

Our Alpacas are professionally sheared once a year.
Alpaca fibre on each animal is of three very distinct types:
1) Neck hair: characteristically fine and soft but too short for spinning
2) Leg hair: characteristically coarse, stiff and straight
3) Body hair, the Blanket: longer, not as fine as neck, nor as coarse as leg – so can be suitable
Our nesting material is made up of a mixture of the above.
Although its sorted its is not washed or cleaned and may have the odd pice of organic material in it.
Our Alpaca fibre comes from our award winning herd of Alpacas in West Sussex UK – Redens Alpacas
