Fittingly, there is an Inca folktale about the vicuña. The animal was said to be the reincarnation of a beautiful young girl who was pursued by an aged, ugly king. She told him she would only allow his advances if he gave her a coat made of gold...and so he did. The animal was sacred to the Incas, and it was forbidden to kill them.
Whether you are exceptionally wealthy, or just fancy a jaw dropping experience, here are some retailers selling vicuña garments. US$2,000 for a shawl anyone?
There was once a nice scandel involving a vicuña coat, which you can read about here.
