"Textile production was an important element of the Incan Empire. In the Andean society, textile products were one of the products with the highest value. (The best) textiles were even more valuable than gold."
Dr. Guillermo A. Cock, archaeologist Carasco, Peru
The finest textiles created in the Incan Empire, which stretched along the Andean region from Equador to Chile on the west coast of South American, were made of the fibers of the vicuna and its domestic form, the alpaca. The 'wool' of these two animals is known today as 'the gold of the Andes'.
We're either out taking care of our alpacas, or working with their wonderful fiber. As time allows, we will add more information on the origins of the alpaca. Until then, don't hesitate to call. We look forward to talking with you about these fascinating animals - their history, their care, their fleece, and farming them for profit.
