The name Quenti is a South American Quechu word meaning “sunbird” – a particular favourite of Quenti Alpaca & Mill which frequents their garden.
Good quality yarn starts right from breeding strong healthy animals with good conformation, that deliver high volumes of lovely long staple, low micron fibre with high comfort factor. They use the very best males available to improve the quality of future generations. They have a small mill in a converted barn to process the yarn.
Alpaca is known as one of the world’s most rare, soft, and beautifully luxurious fibres across a spectrum of natural colours – white, black, and myriad shades of fawn, brown and grey. At Quenti Alpaca & Mill they pay tribute to this wonderful natural resource by careful, sensitive processing and diligent attention to detail to create an exclusive range of knitted and woven products.
