What is "Vicuna" - Definition & Explanation

The fleece is reddish brown, shading to white on the belly. The fibers can be use to manufacture the softest coat cloth in the world … or at least that’s the story from the vicuna growers industry.
The best of all luxury fibers, the Vicuna (that’s an animal) lives mostly above the clouds in certain plateaus of South America. The fiber is so fine, it is half the diameter of the finest wool.
