The alpaca is an animal related to the llama, looks like a long-haired, shaggy llama, and grows thick, long, soft wool. The wool from an alpaca is similar to sheep's wool or mohair, but it is softer and silkier and takes much longer to grow. Therefore, Alpaca fleece is quite expensive and in high demand all over the world. Alpaca does almost as well as cashmere. As always, the larger sizes will bring a higher profit, but don't leave an Alpaca sweater behind in a thrift store! Here are a few recently completed listings for Alpaca sweaters. All listings are for used or pre-owned items that you can pick up in thrift stores for just a few dollars. Notice that all of these items sold for over $100!
