  Alpaca - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
Alpacas are kept in herds that graze on the level heights of the Andes of southern Peru, northern Bolivia, and northern Chile at an altitude of 3500 to 5000 meters above sea-level, throughout the year.
Alpacas are considerably smaller than llamas and unlike them are not used as beasts of burden but are valued only for their fiber (wool), used for making blankets and ponchos in South America, and sweaters, blankets, socks and coats in other parts of the world.
At that time, the alpaca was assumed to be descended from the llama, ignoring similarities in size, fleece and dentition between the alpaca and the vicuña.

The alpaca is a domesticated LLAMA, L. pacos, bred in South America principally for its wool.
Because its fleece is longer and more silky than that of other llama species, it was prized by the Incas, who wove its hair into robes reserved for royalty.
The alpaca requires about two years, spent high in the Andes, to produce a full growth of wool.
