  • Thanks to their unique padded hooves, llamas and their alpaca cousins are gentle on the soil where they graze, making a positive environmental impact.
  • Llamas provide wool, prized for making blankets, ponchos, carpet and rope. But they are also used as pack animals, and their wool can be sold for income.
  • The milk llamas provide is lower in fat and salt and higher in calcium than cow or goat milk.
  • Few animals can survive the harsh terrain of the Andes Mountains like the llama, making them the perfect Heifer gift to families in the region.
