The function and purpose of the alpacas if for its as fleece - soft, smooth, water repellent, hypo-allergenic. Alpacas are much smaller (120-180 lbs and 3 ft at the shoulder) and are solely used for their fleece. They are a flight animal and will not stand up for themselves. We use llamas to help protect our alpacas from predators in addition to livestock guard dogs, Turkish Anatolians.
