On our way to Tambomachay we stopped at this farm where they raise Alpacas, Llamas and Vicunas. They showed us how the wool is dyed after the animals are shorn. they weave very beautiful blankets, shawls, sweaters, fabric, etc. We were able to go among the herd and feed them. He had 87 animals and knew each one by name.
The Vicuna has the finest wool and is the most expensive. In the US a sweater will cost $7,000. Next is the Alpaca and finally the Llama. The Llamas have a much longer neck than the others.
These Vicuna are wild and are on the other side of the fence.
