Vicugna Vicugna

Vicuña - called since ancient times “Princess of the Andes” because of its elegance and nobility - has its natural habitat in the Upper Andes between 3500 and 5000 meters above sea level, on the plateau between Peru, Bolivia, Chile, and Argentina.

The vicuña lives exclusively in the wild, and an adult produces no more than 250 grams of wool in a year, which explains the extreme value of this fiber.
