There are 4 types of fibers resulting from shearing: llama, alpaca, vicuña and guanaco hair. Vicuna wool is the most expensive in the world. The llama population is mainly concentrated in Peru and Bolivia. Alpaca wool is the most widely used in the textile industry. 5000 tons of alpaca wool are harvested each year worldwide and 6000 kg for vicuna wool, which is the most expensive wool in the world. Llama hair is short and soft. There are two types of alpaca that provide wool: the huancayo, whose fiber is short, dense, and spongy, and the suri, whose fiber is longer, stiff, and silky. Alpaca fiber is very coveted because it is soft, warm and 4 times more resistant than sheep’s wool. It is insulating, odorless and hypoallergenic. It comes in 22 different natural colors.
Vicuna wool is light brown, fine, soft and insulating. As for the Guanaco, it has a double coat made up of thick hair and very fine down. Shearing takes place once a year, around the month of May, and can harvest up to 2.5 kg of wool for an alpaca. The hairs are then sorted, washed, dusted and then dried before being combed and spun, to create soft and warm handmade garments such as scarves, sweaters or hats. The alpaca has a low ecological footprint, unlike cashmere goats. Its wool, which does not require chemical treatment, is completely biodegradable. However, this material is far from being local since a large majority of its production is done in Latin America. Moreover, this harvest of wool is not beneficial for all types of llama. While the Pampas Galeras National Reserve in Brazil protects vicuñas, the guanaco is a species on the verge of extinction, threatened by poaching and smuggling.
