Alpacas Origin

Alpacas Origin

Their trajectory from Asia has been traced crossing the Bearing Strait, Canada, USA, Mexico, Peru and arriving to the Chilean Patagonia and Argentina more than 10,000 years ago. Studies show that the major population of the Vicunas is found in Peru and north of Chile, Guanacos in Argentina, Llamas in Bolivia. The alpaca population is distributed between the Chilean and the Peruvian Altiplano in altitudes to 5200 meters above sea level.

Environmentally Friendly

Environmentally Friendly

Alpacas are 100% ecological and gentle to the environment where they reside. They are small, intelligent, and friendly. They consume small quantities of water and food (about 75% less of what a cow or horse consumes in a day.) The hooves are soft with cushions which allow them to walk any terrain without causing damage to the grounds. Alpacas never over graze. They are adaptable to different environments and terrains.
