What is an Alpaca?

The Alpaca is a camelid, native to South America.
It is a cousin to three other South American camelids: the llama, the guanaco and the vicuna.
An adult alpaca weighs 100-175 pounds, and stands about 36 inches at the shoulder. The baby alpaca is called a "cria".
Alpacas have an average lifespan of 20 years, are easily trained, and produce a luxurious fiber that is softer and lighter than sheep's wool.
Gestation for a female alpaca is about 11 months.
Alpacas are the ideal family livestock for small or large farms.
Alpacas feet have pads with two toenails instead of hooves.
Alpacas have teeth on the bottom jaw that close against a soft pallet on top.
Alpacas
eat pasture, hay, and grain, with some basic supplements.
Alpacas are ruminents
, chewing cud like cows.
There are two kinds of alpacas: the "Woolly" Huacaya and the "Silky" Suri. 
The Huacaya Alpaca has fiber that is structured like sheep's wool, while the Suri Alpaca has silky, shiny fiber that falls in locks.
Neither fleece type has lanolin, so alpacas are generally hypoallergenic.

ALPACA FLEECE: "Fiber of the Gods"!

Alpacas produce a luxurious fleece that rivals the finest cashmere and merino. It is light, soft, durable, and oh, so warm. Alpaca fleece is practical andfashionable, and is available in a wide range of rich, natural colors. Unlike other alternative livestock, such as ostriches and emus, alpaca fleece is a viable end product that is well on its way to being a national fiber industry. You can start now to raise the kind of ALPACA fleece you want to be known for in the World Market.

The first alpacas were imported from South America in 1984. While the alpaca population in the U.S. is growing rapidly, there will be a vibrant alpaca breeding business for years to come while the alpaca fleece market continues to develop. The alpaca industry is poised for unprecedented growth, ready to explore ever-improving genetics, and the unlimited uses for the amazing natural, alpaca fiber.
