Alpacas are bred for their wonderful fleece, know as fibre. The Alpacas are sheared once a year and their yarn is used to make high quality knitwear.
Alpaca yarn is special because:
- It is very soft to the touch, many people who can not wear sheep’s wool because it is itchy, are able to wear Alpaca
- It is very warm, (allowing Alpacas to live at altitudes of 4000 meters) and a very light garment can still be very war
- It is very durable and garments can last a lifetime
- It drapes very beautifully and does not become limp
We have a number of hand knitted Alpaca scarves available for sale, please let us know if you are interested in looking at them.
