How Much Does an Alpaca Cost?

Alpacas are social herd animals and usually look like a sheep that have been domesticated for thousands of years.    The alpaca is more popular for its wool than it is for its meat.  While the meat of the alpaca is edible, the wool is usually the reason people buy an alpaca.  The costs of owning and housing an alpaca can be quite high; however, the wool is a renewable source and will regrow every year.  This means that instead of having an alpaca and then killing it and selling its meat one time, you can own an alpaca and sell its wool on a yearly basis.
