S.H.I.P. stands for the Suri Herd Improvement Program. Focusing on protecting, preserving, and promoting the Suri alpaca, the SHIP program is an outstanding way for our members to accomplish that. By collecting data from the evaluation of an alpaca's conformation and fleece, an owner is better able to discern that alpaca's strengths and weaknesses and how to improve them in the next generation. When the data is processed using special computer programs, animals can be ranked relative to all other Suri alpacas currently in the system. The resultant data are called EPDs which stands for Expected Progeny Differences and by using the data, a breeder is given a better idea of what the genetic makeup of their alpaca is.

SURI SIMPLY STUNNING: A few years ago, the Suri Network Board of Trustees embarked on a new program to create recognition of Suri as a natural fiber with specific characteristics of softness, luster, warmth, and adaptability in a wide variety of products. Branding will be beneficial for marketing breeding programs, the fiber produced, and to make high quality Suri products. This program became known as the Suri Simply Stunning branding initiative. Those who want to use this brand must receive permission from the Suri Network to do so. If you are interested in participating, please READ MORE
Committees: The Suri Network relies on several committees to accomplish its mission of preserving the Suri and supporting the membership. Ad hoc committees are also formed as needed. If you are interested in joining a committee or learning more about the committees listed below please email us at firstname.lastname@example.org or call 970-586-5876.
