Alpacas resemble a small llama in appearance and are domesticated species of South American camelid. What makes them different is their hairstyle. Never have an idea that the alpacas have the most glamorous hair in the whole animal kingdom.
THIS is where alpaca yarn comes from! Looks like he/she just had a haircut. I absolutely love to knit with alpaca! I've was told by Alpaca owners that the head isn't sheared, so they look funny after being sheared.
