There are two types of alpacas?

There are two types of alpacas: Huacayas (wah-KI'-ya) and Suris ("surrey"). The main difference between the two types is the fleece appearance. Huacaya fleece has an airy, fluffy look with wavy or crimp-like characteristics. Suri fleece has no crimp, appearing silky, hanging down against the body in locks.
