The Alpaca (Vicuqna pacos) is a species of South American camelid, similar to, and often confused with the Llama.
Alpacas are originally from the South American Andes, particularly in Peru, where they graze at elevations of 10,000 to 14,000 feet.
The fleece of an alpaca is woven into yarn for supple, breathable and extremely durable sweaters and other knitwear.
An Alpaca’s fleece is the softest at it’s neck’s underside, where Royal Alpaca fiber constitutes it’s finest 3%.
