Mundo Alpaca is a must visit in the city of Arequipa. This place offers a great knowledge about knitting of fine wool into a nice sweater. You will also witness the process starting from selection and sorting of wool, carding, yarn twisting, dying using plants—it’s all here in living display. There are several women who weaves the most intricate of designs on a backstrap loom. You will also get a chance to see the machines that in the modern age do the same that are placed on another level of the museum. You can also spot alpaca and llama grazing in the garden, and several galleries showcasing prize-winning paintings by regional as well as national artists.
