Raised at high altitudes of the Peruvian Andes in freezing cold, the Alpaca has developed more thermal capacity in its fibre than almost any other animal.
Alpaca fibre is one of the most luxurious fibres in the world.
The fibre contains microscopic air pockets which create lightweight garments with high insulation values.
Alpaca fleece is hipo-allergenic and super soft so can be worn by those who are irritated by sheep's wool. Alpaca fibre contains no natural oil as lanolin which is found in sheep's wool; consequently the fleece does not require washing or other special treatments before spinning.
People who own alpaca garments will find they practically last forever.
Alpaca does not easily tear, pill, stain or create static. It is easily cleaned with cold water
or dry cleaned.
