Alpaca: Cousin of the camel, alpaca fleece is spun into a soft shiny yarn. Often combined with other fibers, alpaca is commonly used in sweaters, coats, and wraps. Similar to mohair. Alpacas themselves are social creatures with charming little faces, if one likes ungulates. — _A Guide to Quality, Taste and Style_

  1. My mom sent me a funny photo of an alpaca today. Weird.
