Information about Alpaca Fleece :
Alpaca fleece is a lustrous silky natural fibre which has very few prickly guard hairs so it is smooth and soft against the skin. It is a dry fleece which does not contain lanolin, which makes it irritative and hypoallergenic.
- Going beyond the resistance to wear and tear, 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 natural insulation to a well-designed product.
- Alpaca fibre is incredibly soft and it’s been sought after for over 5,000 years. Alpacas were first bred for their fleece by the Inca in South America. They found the fleece so luxurious they name it "The Fibre of the Gods." Fortunately, it’s now spread around the world and alpacas are finally being reared in New Zealand, which means everyone gets to take advantage of the warm, strong, and soft Alpaca fibres.
