Alpaca is one of the finest fibers in the world. Alpaca wool is extremely soft, making this one of our more comfortable products, that is exceptionally pleasant to the touch without the prickly feel sometimes associated with sheep wool. Alpaca wool has a naturally occurring hollow core to its fibres, similar to possum fur. This gives it extreme warmth, by effectively adding a natural insulation to a well designed product. Alpaca fibre is incredibly soft and it’s been sought after for over 5,000 years. Alpaca were first bred for their fleece by the Inca is South America. They found the fleece so luxurious they names it "The Fibre of the Gods."
