Alpaca Wool Offers a Sustainable Alternative to Synthetic Fibers

Tierra Prometida, an alpaca ranch 15 miles west of San Marcos, is home to dozens of alpacas. Alpaca wool is more eco-friendly than synthetic fibers and even other woolly livestock.

Tierra Prometida Ranch is located 15 miles outside of San Marcos on the Devil’s Backbone, a winding, scenic stretch of rolling hills full of desert plants and juniper trees characteristic of the Texas Hill Country.
