They are straightforward to look after, gentle with people, easy on the land, and the sale of their fleece each year could pay for their feed and routine vaccinations. A female alpaca can give birth to one cria each year and has a mortality rate of less than 1%. Alpacas are fully insurable through livestock agencies, so you won’t lose your investment through illness or injury. More...
There are two types of alpacas in the United States today. Although almost physically identical, what distinguishes the two types of alpacas is their fiber. The Huacaya (wa-Ki'-ah) is the more common of the two and has a fluffy, extremely fine coat. The Suri is the rarer of the two and has fiber that is silky and resembles pencil-locks.
The rare Suri represents less than 10% of the over 150,000 registered alpacas in the United States.
