Alpaca clothing is extremely healthy and comfortable to wear. The absence of lanolin and other oils in the fleece and its extraordinary fineness of handling mean that alpaca garments are both hypoallergenic and luxuriously soft on your skin. When you put on an alpaca sweater, you will immediately notice the absence of the scratchy “prickle” found in garments made of more coarse fiber.
Alpaca fleece is the natural fiber harvested from an alpaca. It is light or heavy in weight, depending on how it is spun. It is a soft, durable, luxurious and silky and 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. More comfortable in cold weather. Warm even when wet. Better wicking of body moisture, superior breathability. Resists odors, even in socks! 100% natural luxurious fiber which is environmentally excellent. Naturally wind resistant, excellent breathability, does not mat or pill, fire resistant, will not melt. Low static and wrinkle resistant (hang up and wrinkles fade away)
