Facts about Alpacas

  • Native to the high Andes Mountain countries of Peru, Chile, and Bolivia, the Alpaca is an animal with a thick, dense, crimpy fiber and resembling a teddy bear when in full coat
  • Cousins to camels, llamas, guanacos, and vicunas. They are smaller than llamas and guanacos, but larger than vicunas
  • Alpaca fiber is classified as a rare specialty fiber, with the fleece is prized for its fineness, lightness in weight, luster, and hypo-allergenic properties. Alpaca clothing and home products are pure luxury
  • The cuddly, adorable, curious, and fun nature of the alpaca provides many hours of enjoyment and entertainment for their owners, friends, and family
  • They have universal appeal to both children and adults, are easily trained and gentle enough to be handled by children.
