Peru Vicuna Shearing Festival Photo Gallery

Members of the community shear a vicuna during the national “Chaccu,” or annual roundup of vicunas, in the Pampa Galeras National Reserve, in the Peruvian state of Ayacucho, Wednesday, June 24, 2015. Famous for its smoothness, warmth and light weight, vicuna wool is untangled and sold by the Lucanas community to exporters. Although market prices vary, vicuna fiber is the most expensive wool in the world, far more pricey than cashmere. (AP Photo/Sebastian Castaneda)
