According to an expert, the producers of camel wool clothing in Bolivia need to import raw materials from Peru, as the country does not have the specialized facilities to process the raw camel wool.

This statement was seconded by the Vice-President of Textile Conglomerate Boliviano (Cotexbo), Veronica Valencia, who also repeated that there is no textile mill in Bolivia to process camelids.

According to Luis Pardo, the expert, it was necessary to develop the production chain of textile production that includes camelids, lama, alpaca and vicuña in order to increase export volumes.

He added by saying that between Bolivia and Peru there are 3 million llamas, alpaca and vicuna and quite a big portion of the fibre enters Bolivia from Peru and that the current machinery used by the manufacturers was obsolete.

He was of the opinion that, camel based wool clothing has a high demand in markets such as Europe, Argentina, Brazil and the US and that a camel wool jacket could command a price of US $200-300 against $40-50 for cotton based one.
