One of our favorites, a local company that raises their own Alpaca and produces a fine product Jennifer and Sean Orr have been in business since 2005...
Jennifer & Sean Orr first learned about alpacas while visiting the North American Livestock Exposition in Louisville, KY. What was supposed to be a weekend trip to the fairgrounds turned into a second career and more! Within 8 weeks of their first exposure to these wonderful animals, Copper Ridge Alpacas was born in Georgetown, Indiana. Since the first alpacas arrived Jennifer & Sean have put up over a mile of fencing, maintained a breeding herd as large as 38 alpacas, and have won many awards showing animals at the Alpaca Owners & Breeder’s Association national shows.
Jennifer left corporate America and a job as a fundraising coordinator in the fall of 2002 to work for the Alpaca Fiber Cooperative of North America & their brand America’s Alpaca. Jennifer was the marketing & sales coordinator for the company which sold both yarn & apparel to wholesale and retail customers. Working for a small company gave Jennifer the opportunity to be involved with all aspects of the business. She spent an increasing amount of time with the yarn division including functioning as a sales rep. She has a great understanding of yarn shop needs & opportunities, and has several innovative ideas for support & promotion that will make Alpaca with a Twist a must-have brand.
Alpaca With A Twist began in 2005. While we are a new company we have some very specific goals and we feel we can offer the yarn retailer an outstanding experience with alpaca. Being alpaca breeders we want our yarn to be the best alpaca can be. Our goal is to one day have as much alpaca on yarn stores’ selves as there is wool today.
