If you aren`t familiar with alpacas, you`re not alone. Compared to most commercially-raised animals, they are new arrivals. The United States first commercially imported alpacas in 1984. There are now more than 150,000 alpacas registered with Alpaca Registry Inc. in North America.
There are two types of alpacas in the United States. Although almost physically identical, what distinguishes the two types of alpacas is their fiber. The Huacaya (wa-Ki`-ah) is the more common of the two; it has a fluffy and extremely-fine coat. The Suri is the rarer of the two and has fiber that is silky and resembles pencil-locks.
Animals are raised for both the show ring and for their fiber. Most of the fiber grown by the United States breeders finds its way to consumers for craft uses - although there is a growing movement to establish a commercial apparel industry.
