History of Alpacas
Alpacas originated with the Incas in Peru. The Incas domesticated Alpacas from
the wild Vicuña, a Camelid which
produces fiber that is still considered the finest naturally grown animal fiber in the world. The
ancient Incan economy was
based on textiles, not gold. As weavers, the Incas valued their Alpaca fiber, and the finest fiber was reserved for Royalty.
Spaniards invaded in 1532, led by Francisco Pizarro, the Incan people saved their Alpacas by driving
them from their populated cities to the Altiplano, a hidden highland
sanctuary of more than 14,000 feet in elevation. Alpacas are such hardy
animals that they were able to adapt to the harsh environment and poor forage
found there. Contact us to learn more about Alpacas, and how they are related to other Camelids, like Vicuñas, Llamas, Guanacos, and Camels.
