Meet Sylvia Showers

The woman behind the animals at Yellow Star Ranch

Sylvia always had a passion for animals. It wasn’t until she decided to relocate to Canada from her native Germany in the 1990’s when she saw her first Alpaca and fell in love with these wonderful animals and their personalities. 

Since then Sylvia has been breeding, raising and showing Alpacas very successfully and enjoys working with their luxurious fibre. 

She is very passionate about the animals and pays very close attention to the breeding program in order to create healthy and high-quality breeding stock which is occasionally for sale. 

The ranch also keeps livestock guardian dogs with the alpacas in order to protect them from predators. The breed of choice is the Komondor and we are proud to say that we never lost an alpaca to a predator thanks to the dogs. 

At a young age, her grandmother taught her to knit, crochet and weave in her native Germany. So now it’s a perfect fit for Sylvia, as she also creates beautiful clothing items and accessories made from alpaca fibre. Every single item is a “one of a kind” treasure. 

Don’t hesitate to get in touch with us with any questions you might have, if you would like to meet the animals or if you would like to treat yourself or somebody else with a special clothing item or any accessories made from our own alpaca fibre. 

We are just a phone call or e-mail away.
