Fiber production in The United States is limited to small companies and farms due to the slow reproduction rate. Each female can produce one off-spring per year and twins are highly unlikely. Cloning and genetic modification is also nearly impossible because of the genetic makeup of Alpaca’s. Both of these make it extremely difficult for large companies to get involved in mass production.
