The alpaca is a camelid native to South America. Not to be confused with its relative the llama. The petite alpaca has straighter, smaller ears and has been carefully bred and domesticated for its luxurious single-layer coat for no less than 6000 years, its fibre fit for royalty. Similar to fine merino (sheep) wool, alpaca wool is warmer, less prickly, contains no lanoline (making it hypoallergenic) and is naturally water and fire-resistant.
