Alpaca fiber has been called the "fiber of the gods". The unique properties make it one of the most highly sought after luxury fibers in the world. Alpacas come in 22 natural colors. Lacking lanolin found in other types of fiber, alpaca does not have the "prickle" factor and can be worn by those who are allergic to wool and other fleece. A garment made from alpaca will be lightweight, soft and much warmer than any other. A quality alpaca product will last for many years with proper care.
