Wrong.  Sorry, but a vicu~na (with a spanish ~n, as in Se~nor) is a llama -
like animal popular in South America.  A coat made of such an animal should
be quite warm, and probably expensive, judging by llama-fleece sweatewrs.
the animal in Ben's office, whose fur appeared onm Maddie was _definitely_
not a vicuna, but (Ithink) a white fox, at least according to Albert.  I
might be mistaken about the fox, but not about the Vicuna (according to
Webster's it is related to the guanaco, llama and alpaca, and resides in the
Andes).
