Alpacas are considered domesticated herd animals. I have seen a group of alpacas around this area. This would be called an alpaca farm.
Alpacas are known for their fleece. It is made into yarn. Scarves, blankets and such items are made from it, like wool is used.
I was told that llamas spit, but not alpacas. I read that alpacas spit. If I’m ever around alpacas, I’m not taking any chances. I will keep my distance. If you ever get spit upon by a llama, camel or alpaca, you won’t forget it. It stinks.
