At the begining they come from a wild enviroment and then they are kept in semi-captivity. The Ministry of Natural Resources of the Province of Rio Negro control the number of these animals and gives permission to breed them.
For many years the wool was sold illegally at high prices because it was considered to be similar to the wool of the vicuna for its high quality. Today, the situation has changed, because now it can be sold legally at reasonable prices.
