Fleece The hair of the alpaca is called 'fleece' or 'fiber' rather than 'fur' or 'wool.' Alpaca fleece has many natural shades ranging from black to silver and rose gray and white, from mahogany brown to light fawn and champagne.
Alpacas are camelids and look like small llamas but prettier a bit like a small camel with no humps, especially when recently sheared. They have camel-like faces with thick lips, pronounced noses, and long ears. Their large, expressive eyes seem to exhibit both wisdom and childlike curiousity. Easily domesticated, alpacas are friendly, gentle and curious.
Personality Alpacas exhibit individual personality. They are herd animals, preferring the companionship of their friends and their established community, and will become stressed if separated from their buddies.
