The Alpaca Fleece Advantages

A few Alpaca fleece facts:
  • Alpaca fiber is unusually strong and resilient. The strength of the fiber does not diminish as it becomes finer, thus making it ideal for industrial processing.
  • Raised at high altitudes in freezing cold, the alpaca has developed more thermal capacity in its fiber than almost any other animal. The fiber contains microscopic air pockets which create lightweight garments with high insulation and water resistant values.
  • Alpaca fiber is soft, supple and smooth to the touch. The cellular structure of the fiber produces a soft handle unmatched by most other specialty fibers.
  • Alpaca fleece has a natural rich luster which gives garments made from 100% alpaca high visual appeal.
  • Alpaca is easily dyed any color and always retains its natural luster. 25.39% of the world alpaca population is white, only 9.75% is true black.
  • Alpaca is compatible with either the woolen or worsted manufacturing systems. Fabric made from alpaca can range from bulky tweeds to fine gabardine.
  • People who own alpaca sweaters will find they practically last forever. Alpaca does not easily tear, pill, stain, or create static electricity. It is easily cleaned, either hand washed with mild soap or shampoo, or dry-cleaned.
