Alpacas produce one of the world’s finest and most luxurious natural fibers. Soft as cashmere, warmer, lighter and stronger than wool, and it comes in 22 natural colors.
Alpaca has a natural, rich luster, with a silky feel. It is seven times warmer and three times stronger than sheep’s wool, however it does not contain lanolin, so most people who can not wear wool next to their skin, find alpaca wonderful to wrap themselves into.
Alpaca fiber is considered to be hypo-allergenic, especially the ultra-fine, premium grade products.
