An Alpaca (Vicugna pacos) is a domesticated species of South American camelid.  It resembles a small llama in appearance.

There are two breeds of alpaca; the Suri alpaca and the Huacaya alpaca.

Alpacas are kept in herds that graze on the level heights of the Andes of southern Peru,
northern Bolivia, Ecuador, and northern Chile at an altitude of 3,500 m (11,500 ft) to 5,000 m (16,000 ft) above sea level, throughout the year.  Alpacas are considerably smaller than llamas, and unlike llamas, they were not bred to be beasts of burden, but were bred specifically for their fibre. Alpaca fibre is used for making knitted and woven items, similar to wool.  These items include blankets, sweaters, hats, gloves, scarves, a wide variety of textiles and ponchos in South America, and sweaters, socks, coats and bedding in other parts of the world.  The fibre  comes in more than 52 natural colors as classified in Peru, 12 as classified in Australia and 16 as classified in the United States.

An adult alpaca generally is between 8199 centimetres (3239 in) in height at the shoulders (withers).  They usually weigh 4884 kilograms (106185 lb).
