In this March 9, 2016 photo, yarn made from alpaca fiber lays inside a storage area at a weaving workshop where women spin alpaca hair into yarn for a company in Ajoyani village of the Puno department of Peru. The finest threads are chosen, then washed, dried, cleaned up and converted into yarn. Finally, the yarn is woven into fabric used to make clothing. (AP Photo/Martin Mejia)
In this March 9, 2016 photo, black and white alpacas run on the Mallkini Hacienda alpaca farm in the highlands of the Puno department of Peru. Colored in one of 24 different natural tones, the fiber from this domesticated camelid smaller than a llama is processed after an annual shearing, with each alpaca producing a little more than 8 pounds (3.7 kilograms) of fiber each year.

In this March 8, 2016 photo, an Andean shepherd carries a young alpaca back to the herd after it strayed away within the Mallkini Hacienda alpaca farm, which breeds alpacas for their fiber, in the highlands of the Puno department of Peru. The shepherd leads the alpacas outside the farm every day for grazing and exercise, and returns them to the farm at night. (AP Photo/Martin Mejia)

Millions of alpaca roam the hills of Peru, where 80 percent of the world's alpaca fiber comes from. The fiber, which is sheared from the animal yearly, is soft and hypoallergenic.

After the fiber is shorn from the alpaca, it's cleaned and turned into yarn, which is eventually sold to factories that produce thousands of pieces of clothing in the US, Japan and Germany, among others.

"I'm super happy to be able to work with this fiber, to take it to the world in expositions, fashion shows," Jenny Duarte, a Peruvian designer told the Associated Press.

Alpacas are adorably goofy -- and it's not a facade. They have a sweet disposition and don't bite, scratch or kick.

Take a look at the photos above for an in-depth look at the creation of the perfect alpaca fiber.
