I agree - alpacas are WONDERFUL for their fiber. *sigh* I have been looking into getting a few...unfortunately, even unregistered Alpacas are REALLY spendy, though. You'll be lucky to find one for less than $800, even at an auction. Llamas, however, are more reasonable. The problem is that not all of them have nice fibers...some are very course and suitable only for things like rugs and wall hangings. But if you manage the find the right one, you could have all kinds of nice fiber and a guard animal to boot (if you find the right one, that is!).Unregistered said:I would recomend an Alpaca (doesn't have to be registered).
Their fur is far more superior,tensile strength wise and has better insulalating and whicking peoperties then any wool. It is alsp added to cashmeire (SP)
