Welcome to the Skilling family

We, Alan and Lyn Skilling, live on an 8 hectare (20 acre) lifestyle block in the picturesque Maratoto Valley, 8 kilometres north of Paeroa in the North Island of New Zealand.  We have operated Qtaz Alpacas since 2004.

We love our alpacas and are proud to say that we have had great success in the show ring, which can be attributed to the use of high quality dams and exceptional stud males.

We have approximately 50 alpaca on farm. We have concentrated on building a high quality herd, focusing on fawn and brown huacaya, with fine, dense, well structured fleeces.  We pride ourselves on breeding alpacas with excellent conformation.


Our alpacas are used to being handled and are calm and trusting of us.  We take great delight in observing them and interacting with them regularly. 

We enjoy the camaraderie of fellow breeders and welcome anyone who would like to chat about anything alpaca.
