The most coveted of all specialty hair fibers, from the smallest and wildest member of the llama family. This costly, luxurious fiber is finer than merino wool, with a rich, beautiful color that ranges from golden chestnut to cinammon. Each animal yields only a few ounces. The very limited supply of vicuna is controlled by the peruvian government.
