Facts of Interest:

  • Alpacas mostly inhabit the Andes of Peru, Chile, Bolivia, and Ecuador.
  • Although bred for their extremely silky fleece, alpacas are versatile animals. They are easily trained, can carry heavy loads, serve as guard animals and their meat, which has a flavor similar to lamb, can be eaten.
  • Alpacas are related to llamas, but there are many differences between the two. Alpacas have straighter ears, softer fleece, and are shorter than llamas.
  • Alpaca fleece's popularity is not solely due to its fine texture. It is flame-resistant, repels water and contains no lanolin, so it is touted as being hypoallergenic.
  • Alpacas spit in order to warn other alpacas (and sometimes humans) that they are too close.
