The Vicuña is the smallest of the South American camelids and, together with the guanaco, is one of the two species which in live in the wild.
The Vicuña’s extremely fine fibre, which for thousands of years has been so highly regarded by the Andean cultures, was used exclusively to clothe Royalty. The Inca Emperor, whose father is the Sun, wore only sophisticated garments made from this exceptional material, and he would use them only once.
