Benefits

The natural wax of Alpaca wool, lanolin, makes it naturally hypoallergenic and smoother than other wools. It also pills less than cashmere, not to mention rarer. Therefore, those who are sensitive to wool find that they can wear alpaca without feeling skin irritation or itching. Among other, the advantages of using alpaca are: it wicks away body moisture and has superior breathability and less odor retention.

Production

Alpaca weaving is a traditional craft done using sustainable methods, which puts it under the desirable “fair trade” banner. Alpaca wool is as warm as common wool and yet just a mere 1/3 of the weight, which means that its insulation capacity is around three times higher, making garments so very light and warm!
Alpaca is a dry fibre with a minimum of lanolin meaning it does not need scouring before the spinning, it can be spun into yard right after the fleece.
Another interesting fact is that it is rarer than cashemere and it also pills less because of its longer fiber.
