Alpacas are the smallest of the domesticated camelid species. They have slender bodies, long necks, camel-like faces and medium-length fluffy tails. Our three alpacas at the zoo are known as huacaya alpacas as their fleece is crimped, compact, and soft. Suri alpacas have longer cylindrical locks resembling dreadlocks. Similar to sheep wool, alpaca fiber is used to make knitted and woven items, such as clothing and other textiles.
