Vicuña: The World’s Most Expensive Wool Comes From a Llama

Deep within the Andes of Peru gallops an animal that’s treasured across the world. It belongs to the family of Llamas but is called a Vicuña, identified by its slender 1.8mtr tall body and glistening mane. The coat of wool, sheer and soft and uncompromisingly warm, is sold more expensive than your finest cashmere. Stunned? The Vicuña’s wool is warm enough to keep its body temperature comfortably regulated against the harsh Andean temperatures at 4,000mts; imagine the magic it would wield in the more comfortable temperatures of your state.
