Gumtree Gully Alpacas is a small, growing family run business, situated just north of Auckland City in Warkworth.
We are focused on breeding high quality, fine fleeced alpacas in a range of colours, with a particular interest in improving our black animals. We love spending time with these beautiful, curious, intelligent creatures, and enjoy sharing the experience with others.
We stock a great range of luxurious, super soft yarns, knitting packs, carded fibre and gorgeous knitted items ranging from booties, vests, beanies, cardys and scarves.
We also attend a variety of markets in the Auckland area, keep an eye on our Facebook page (www.facebook.com/GumtreeGullyAlpacas) and website for upcoming dates.
We are happy to help those looking into the industry to do their homework, whether it be to keep pets or start a breeding herd.
We will always be thankful we came across a great bunch of people who were so willing to share their knowledge with us, and will endeavour to pay that forward.

Corbans Estate Art Centre

If you are in any way, shape or form a yarnie, you NEED to be here!
This is NZ’s biggest collection of fibre growers, dyers, artists and classes under one roof.
You’ll find everything from raw fibre, carded fibre, yarns (natural and dyed), patterns, accessories and more.
Coffee and food on site, most vendors will have eftpos facilities but it pays to have some cash on hand.
See you there with bells on!
