Viewing 8 items in Alpaca

Dating back to 1808, Alpaca yarn was first time spun in England. This fibre had to take long journey to get itself recognized in Europe. Now after some two centuries it has made its mark as luxury fibre due to its soft durable and silk like properties and also because its very rarely found. While similar to sheep’s wool, it is warmer, not prickly, and has no lanolin, which makes it hypoallergenic Alpaca is naturally water-repellent and difficult to ignite. Huacaya, an alpaca that grows soft spongy fiber, has natural crimp, thus making a naturally elastic yarn well-suited for knitting. Suri has far less crimp and thus is a better fit for woven goods.
