I did... but only because there was an article about vicuna in Spin Off magazine a couple years ago. It's very high on my "coveting" list. :teehee:

I knew what it was, but only b/c there was a thread about vicuna fiber on here a few months ago. It's a cousin of the Alpaca but it can be shorn every few years so the fiber is SUPER expensive. I just wanna be in the same room with some... ;)

LOL, saw a program on camelids several years ago so even if I didn't knit I would know what Llamas, Alpacas, Vicunas, and guanacos were.

I was actually kind of impressed at the versatility of the llama...a pack animal that also provides high quality wool, is protective of smaller farmyard animals and is edible too? Awesome.

(And so pretty...I want a dozen for Christmas--in white and tan and chocolate and grey and black, plus a spinning wheel....oh, and that Publisher's Clearinghouse check I'm always in the running for so I can devote my time to the fiberarts!:mrgreen: )
