Are you talking about the vicuna blend, or real vicuna?
Real vicuna feels amazing. When I wear my vicuna coat, I literally cannot stop touching it. I have guanaco, cashmere, camelhair, various wools, etc,etc and the vicuna really does have the best hand, to my taste, at least.
One of the best uses of vicuna I've found is actually to let me wear lighter clothes and just the lighter coat (it's a car-coat type piece, sort of) for longer into the cold season than I could with other types of fabric. It's really a wardrobe-extending choice - I could see why some oil baron might think it's worth dropping truckloads of money on if the price isn't an object.
