Alpacas are mainly bred for their excellent wool. Alpaca wool is shiny and silky, soft and luxurious. Alpaca wool is considered to be 7 times warmer and 3 times stronger than sheep's wool, it is not prickly and does not contain lanolin, so it is allergy-free. Wool is available in 22 different natural shades. The carding, spinning, and weaving of alpaca wool is very similar to that of sheep's wool. Alpacas are generally sheared once a year in the spring. Each shearing yields about 2.2 to 4.5 kg of wool. Wool quality is measured in microns (mc-micron), but other properties are also taken into account, such as wool uniformity. They also determine the price of wool.

An interesting fact about alpacas: An interesting fact about alpacas: The Incas used gilded Alpaca fabric in place of currency
The alpacas were domesticated together with the guanacos and llamas during that time. Llamas were domesticated descendants of the guanaco, and alpaca was a domesticated descendant of the earlier vicuna. The difference is evident for the Incas since they use them for their fleece, although llamas are pack animals.
