Alpacas are my new favourite animal.
Here is a list of surprising hidden talents and interesting facts about this beautiful creature
- Their fleece is hypoallergenic due to the lack of lanolin – see our Alpaca throws for details!
- They can guard your sheep. Their long necks mean they can literally raise their heads above the sheep to keep a look out for baddies
- They are used to support people with Autism. Click here for a lovely news item
- Their fleece is as soft as cashmere but it is more durable – so I think much better!
- They are heard animals and like to be in the company of their fellow alpacas
- An alpaca walks into an Opticians…. NO JOKES!
