Wikipedia article

This article is about an older version of DF.
A large domestic animal with a long neck. It has been bred for its valuable hair.

Alpacas are common domestic livestock available to most any civilization. Alpacas can be sheared to yield wool, which can be used to make low-value cloth. In addition to the standard meat industry products, alpacas also supply wool when butchered.

Female alpacas can be milked, and that milk can then be cooked or made into cheese.

As grazers, alpacas require a moderately-sized pasture to survive; however they eat far less grass than cattle, and make an excellent base animal for combined meat, cheese, and cloth industries.

Alpaca wool is equivalent in value to the wool of all other shearable creatures.

Some dwarves like alpacas for their long necks, their jutting teeth, their wool, and their resemblance to a miniature llama.

[edit] In Real Life

In real life, alpacas are bred and kept for their highly valuable wool, which is prized for its softness and color. It is commonly referred to as "The fiber of the Gods" due to its silk-like feeling.

Admired for their long necks.
