Alpaca fiber can have more than twenty two natural colors and the use of this fiber is so versatile that there is no waste in its production system. The Andean communities working in the harvesting and production of the wool adopt traditional methods and pay great attention to the animals’ well – being. Besides unlike other species producing wool, alpacas do not cause the desertification of the land where they graze, this is a fundamental factor for the preservation of the ecological balance.
