About Alpaca Fiber

Alpaca fiber is one of the finest natural fibers in the world. It is silky soft and lustrous, and comes in 22 natural colors.

Alpaca fiber has a hollow core. This allows the fiber to breathe and is why it is so comfortable. The hollow core in alpaca fibers trap pockets of air which act as insulators against both cold and heat.

Alpaca fiber absorbs liquids and is why alpaca socks are so comfortable. The thermal and water absorption properties of alpaca blankets provide a more comfortable and sounder sleep.

Alpaca fiber is the only natural fiber that is warm in the winter and cool in the summer. Because Alpaca fiber does not contain lanolin, it is naturally hypoallergenic.
