Ok I looked it up and here's what I learned:

Note: We are more familiar with the other name used for this animal: the llama. However, the llama is a domesticated guanaco. The alpaca is another domesticated guanaco bred specifically for its wool, and it is thus much hairier than its llama kin.

So you're right, its the same family.
