The animals in the Alpaca Set from Schleich® WILD LIFE come from the South American Andes, where they are bred for their soft, warm wool. Alpaca wool is very popular because it is warmer than sheep wool and suitable for people with allergies. They are hump-less camels with a calm and friendly temperament. The two young animals have different coats: One is white, the other brown. They are suckled by their mother for 6-8 months before starting to eat grass.
