Alpaca produces a natural fiber that is light or heavy in weight, depending on how it is spun. It is a soft, durable, luxurious and silky natural fiber. While similar to sheep’s wool, it is warmer, not prickly, and has no lanolin, which makes it hypoallergenic. Alpaca is naturally water-repellent and difficult to ignite. Huacaya, an alpaca that grows soft spongy fiber, has natural crimp, thus making a naturally elastic yarn well-suited for knitting.
Alpaca fleece is made into various products, from very simple garments made by the aboriginal communities to sophisticated, industrially made and expensive products such as suits.
We are currently processing our fiber and will post sale items shortly.
