Alpaca was once considered a gift from the gods and the most important relic of the history of the Incas. Alpacas are members of the camelid family which also includes camels, llamas, vicunas and guanacos.
There are two distinct breeds of these four-legged animals: the Huacaya alpaca and the Suri alpaca. The types of fiber derived from each of these types of alpacas are equally prized for different reasons. Fiber derived from alpacas can be either heavy or light depending on how it is spun, which means that it is ideal for a number of different kinds of products. Compared to sheep’s wool, alpaca fiber is considerably softer, and it is also more durable.
