Alpaca is considered to be a luxury fibre. The Alpaca is a camelid (related to camels) like the Llama. This fibre has been used for centuries in woven fabrics and vast amounts were imported to Europe for use in suiting.
The main producing area are the mountainous South American countries of Peru, Bolivia and Ecuador, but animals have been successfully bred more recently in other countries, on a smaller scale.
How soft is it? Next to skin soft.

I dye all my fiber using professional dyes in my smoke free and pet friendly home. Our puppy Brutus the Yorkshire Terrier is, of course, not allowed to play with wool.
Care instructions: Handwash finished product with cool water, this product can felt.
Please be aware. While I do strive to accurately represent the colors in all my products, all monitors vary and what I see on my screen, may not be what you see on yours.
I dye my fibers in small batches and no two 4 oz braids will be 100% the same- that's what makes working with hand dyed wool so fun!
