ADAIRSVILLE -- Few animals are cuter, sweeter and more intriguing than the Alpaca. Cousin to the Llama, Alpacas were introduced to the United States from Peru, Ecuador, Bolivia and Chile.

Alpacas are largely bred for their soft, thick fleece used to make clothing such as hats, scarfs, socks and sweaters.

Alpaca farming is becoming more and more popular in the United States. In fact, there are seven Alpaca farms located in North Georgia alone.

11Alive's Commuter Dude set out for Southern Estate Alpacas in Adairsville for a delightful "One Tank Trip".
