The alpaca is a product of ancient Andean civilizations, when 6,000 years ago it had already evolved from the vicuña to produce a unique fibre. Alpaca fibre has worldwide renown for its luxurious quality . Alpaca fibre is fine, strong (second only to silk among natural fibres), very warm, comfortable and with the lightness of a feather.
An alpaca (Vicugna pacos) is a domesticated species of South American camelid. It resembles a small llama in appearance.Alpacas are kept in herds that graze on the level heights of the Andes of southern Peru, northern Bolivia, Ecuador, and northern Chile at an altitude of 3,500 m (11,500 ft) to 5,000 m (16,000 ft) above sea level, throughout the year. Alpacas are considerably smaller than llamas, and unlike llamas, they were not bred to be beasts of burden, but were bred specifically for their fiber. Alpaca fiber is used for making knitted and woven items, similar to wool. These items include blankets, sweaters, hats, gloves, scarves, a wide variety of textiles and ponchos in South America.
