Young alpacas approach Susan Kacsh at Pleasant Journey Alpacas, the ranch Kacsch and her husband, Glenn, operate south of Breen. The Kacshes oversee a herd of 70 alpacas.
Susan Kacsh holds a young alpaca. The Kacshes are among a growing number of alpaca breeders in the country. The Alpaca Owners and Breeders Association has more than 3,500 members, and there are more than 170,000 alpacas in the U.S.
Alpaca fleece is soft, three times warmer than wool and doesn’t cause allergies.
“Alpaca are very gentle, timid and curious,” says Susan Kacsh. “Some like to be petted, but most don’t.”
