They're prized around the world for their coats. Alpaca fiber is woven into just about everything from blankets to sweaters.

But, as photojournalist Todd Ruffin shows us in the video above, one alpaca named "Cornucopia" is unique—she has a specially built prosthetic leg.

As you will see, it doesn't slow her down.

Part of the prosthetic is a sock, which is, of course, made from alpaca fiber.
