Vicunas are the higher altitude animals living in the high alpine areas of the Andes Mountains in South America, in parts of Peru, Bolivia, Chile, and Ecuador. It’s the national animal of Peru.

They belong to the family of llamas and alpacas. Alpacas and llamas are domestic animals and guanaco and vicunas are the wild ones. Vicunas are the smallest amongst these four related species which produces extremely soft, finest, and most luxurious natural fiber of the world. They live above the altitude of 4500 meters from sea level which automatically makes them resistant to extreme cold at such heights. These high parts where vicunas live are extremely cold at night. Their body traps the heat from the sun during the day which it uses to keep warm at night.

For centuries these animals were hunted rather than sheared, for a material substantially finest amongst all the natural fibers. They were known as Inca royalty treasures during those times. Only royal families were permitted to wear vicuna garments but today its products are all over the world.

Vicunas were hunted to use their fur for clothing till the verge of extinction. During 1974 only around 6000 vicunas were left due to haphazard hunting and illegal poaching.

Compared to cotton, linen, and other synthetic fibers vicuna wool acts as the best insulating fiber especially when it’s wet. When you accidentally spill water on your normal synthetic fiber clothes, the heat gets sucked right out of you even if it’s warm outside. But with vicuna, the great comfort from vicuna comes from the ability of this fiber to wick moisture away, that is to absorb moisture from the body and move it throughout the fibers. It creates the perfect microenvironment for the body to maintain a balanced heart rate.

Soft and Durable

The natural feature of this fiber is resilience and resistance which makes it soft and durable. It has a natural way of being resistant towards dust mites and a self-cleaning mechanism. The scales running on the sheath of these fibers act as a venting system to let the moisture go through keeping dirt outside.
