We have 3 Alpacas at AppleCast. Acka, Macka and Packa. Alpacas are part of the camelid family which is why they resemble a camel and a llama. Alpacas are used mainly for wool, they have extremely soft wool and this wool is fire resistant, durable and hypoallergenic. It is usually a more expensive wool than sheep’s wool as it is so much fluffier and soft.
