Alpaca Farmers Hit By The Crash

Llama and alpaca farmers have been hit by a huge drop in the price for their animals’ wool. This is unsurprising as alpaca and llama woolens are luxury items and commodity prices worldwide have fallen in response to a drop in demand. From my experience, these people appear to be as disconnected from the modern global economy as possible. Just try taking a road out to a small town in the Altiplano. It’s isolated from even other parts of Bolivia, but ultimately still greatly affected by things happening in New York and London.
