At Akuna Matada Ranch, we work with artists from India and Suri alpaca fiber to create hand spun, hand knotted Suri Persian rugs.  Stunning Rare Fiber, Ancient Craftsmanship, One-of-a-Kind.

Our alpaca herd produces uniform, dense and grade-appropriate fleece for a U.S. commercial market by utilizing all the tools of a true livestock model. This means Histograms, Skin Biopsies, herd improvement and genetic culling.

Owner Deb Christner is very involved with the Suri Network.  She was previously the chair of The Suri Network-Product Development Committee, and is currently Vice-President of The Suri Network Board, where she is the SHIP liaison and formed the Suri Branding Committee. She has worked with many knowledgeable fiber people and sorts and grade fiber for The North American Suri Co.

Skilled weavers in India began experimenting with Suri Alpaca Fiber in 2015. They soon fell in love with Suri fiber, as it had the luster and straight silky locks they were looking for, and so many natural colors to work with.

Akuna Matada Suri Ranch works with a family-run company in India that creates beautiful Hand Knotted Persian Rugs from Suri Fiber.

The only Persian rugs in the world made from Suri Alpaca fiber.  We are the sole North American distributor of theses  one-of-a-kind rugs.
