Perhaps one way of measuring success of our breeding programme is to look at the success of Redens Alpacas in the showring. Our achievements are the result of participating in the  shows run by the British Alpaca Society who offer a registered national network of shows which enables breeders to compete and compare their achievements with other herds within a balanced and discerning framework. These shows are run to strict BAS rules which adhere to the accepted worldwide standards for showing alpacas and fleece. 

We are proud that the alpacas bred at Redens have been awarded over 70 1st places, 60 2nd places, 28 colour championships and 28 reserve colour championships.

We are even more proud of the many success that our customers have had with their alpacas sired by Redens males or bred from Redens females. 

Alpaca shows in the UK are organised into classes to compare alpacas by colour, sex, and age with the top six in each class being placed. Then the top 2 in each colour class are compared to award champions and reserve champions. To end these shows all the colour champions are compared to award the supreme champion of the overall show.

Our Success In The Showring

Our stud males have enabled our show success

Stud Males


We handle our cria from an early age so they get used to being with people to make handling easy as they grow up. They are weighed weekly in their first few months and halter trained when they reach 6 months.



It is particularly pleasing to note that many of our Shadow progeny have finer fleeces than shadow did when he was a cria. Shadow won  best black alpaca fleece at several Australian shows including the 2015 Australia National



We strive to have peaceful and easy to handle alpacas. This has been achieved this through frequent gentle handling.

friendly and relaxed
