That recently posted article on the Robb Report website got me thinking about getting a vicuna scarf. I did a quick search and found a company in Peru called Alpaca 111. They only sell wholesale and the price I was quoted was $450 per scarf if you buy 1-5 or $250 each if you buy 6 or more. The woman I contacted mentioned that it takes 2-3 weeks for them to get a special authorization called a Cites from the government. You also need to get an importation license from your state/provence before they can ship it to you. Much cheaper than the $2000 mentioned in the article. What do you guys think? Is it possible to get it cheaper somewhere else or is this it?
