Alpacas are members of the camelid family and are known for their luxurious fleece.  There are two types of Alpacas: Huacaya and Suri.  Suri fiber grows quite long and forms silky, pencil like locks.  The Huacaya fiber is shorter, dense, crimpy fleece, giving it a very whooly appearance. 

The average height of an alpaca is 36” and they weigh between 100-150 lbs.  Alpacas have a life span of 15 to 20 years.  A baby alpaca is called a cria, and stays with their mother for approximately 6 months.

Alpacas have soft padded feet, making them gentle on their pastures.  Alpacas are small and gentle enough to travel short distances in the family minivan and are easily handled by most people.
