Alpaca is considered by the fashion world to be one of the most natural exclusive and luxurious fibers. Softer than cashmere, warmer and stronger than lamb’s wool, Alpaca contains no lanolin, which means it is hypoallergenic to most people. High-grade Alpaca, such as Baby Alpaca, has a low prickle factor. Thus, it does not itch and most people can comfortably wear pure Alpaca like a second skin. Alpaca works as a natural insulator: because of its microscopic air pockets, it keeps the heat during the cooler weather and it releases the heat during warmer temperatures – which means you can wear Alpaca during most seasons.



  • Comfort: It contains no lanolin and thus it does itch.
  • Water-prof: The absorption of environmental humidity is low and thus it is naturally water resistant.
  • Thermal Properties: It works as an insulator. Alpaca contains microscopic air pockets, which creates lightweight clothing with good insulating values.
  • Pilling: This fiber has a lesser tendency to pilling, compared to wool and other animal fibers.
  • Softness: Its fiber is silky, soft, supple and smooth to the touch. It is prized for its unique silky and luxurious feel. Alpaca is softer than cashmere, warmer and stronger than lambs’ wool.
  • Visual Aspect: The fabric has an excellent drape, appearance, and its appearance is unchangeable over time.
  • Colors: Alpaca is the only animal that produces up to 28natural colors which can be blended into an infinite array of natural shades. Alpaca is easily dyed in any color and always retains its natural luster.
  • Non Flammable: The fiber does not burn, unless put in direct contact with fire Elasticity and Resistance: Alpaca fiber is unusually strong and resilient and has a very good elasticity, making it possible to compare it with wool and other animal fibers.
  • World Production: The amount of alpaca fiber produced worldwide is a fraction of total wool production.
