Research into innovative co-operative system capable of linking alpaca fibre producers operating in the EU to participate directly with relevant alpaca consuming manufacturers, designers and retailers that are positioned along the supply chain between alpaca fibre producers and the final consumer of alpaca clothing. The objective is to construct a management system able to attract maximum financial incentives for alpaca breeders to encourage them to co-operate together to stimulate the supply of sufficient alpaca fibre in the qualities and volume necessary for the user industry. The research will also examine the viability of the alpaca animal as an alternative for breeders in the farming industry to consider as an addition to, or replacement of, the current animals that they stock.
