Alpaca is famous for its thermal properties and for the finess. silkiness, softness and durability of the yarn. In fact, alpaca yarn has a longer shelf life than merino wool or any other natural fibre.
Unlike synthetic or other man-made fibres the alpaca fibre is made of protein and as such it is biodegradable. When disposed of it blends back into the earth in a relatively short period of time.
Vast, untouched, rugged and remote – the Andes are known for their extremes in temperatures. Alpacas live in altitudes ranging from 2500 to 4500 meters where temperatures can vary between +30C to -20C in a single day. If the alpaca fibres would not have very special properties, the animals could not survive in these conditions. Nature could not have developed a better insulating fibre.
Alpaca yarn does not contain any lanolin and therefore does not cause the allergic reaction that can be caused by merino or sheep wool.
