According to a recent article about Incalpaca’s KUNA

brand in LAN’s in-flight publication, Moda, recent figures

quoted indicate that Peru’s vicuña population is

now around 208,000 – a far cry to being less than

5,000 in the 1960s.

 

The species inhabits altitudes of more than 4,000 metres

above sea level (13,125 feet) and its 10 to 13

micron fleece is an important source of income to

some 350,000 members of the communities that are

licensed to commercialise the fibre obtained from live

animals.
