Interesting Facts About Alpaca Fiber

    Alpaca is a hollow core fiber.  Unlike many wool products, alpaca fiber "breathes."  Therefore, it does not trap in body heat which is what makes so many sweaters uncomfortably hot.  Alpaca fiber does not have lanolin.  Since there is no lanolin, harsh chemicals are not required to clean it.  Alpacas do not have guard hair.  These qualities make alpaca soft and comfortable to wear, not itchy!!  Many people who cannot wear wool can wear alpaca. Try it!
