Once treasured by Inca Royalty for its unique strength, lustre and slippery softness, Alpaca wool has a hollow fibre which renders it uniquely light and up to 30% warmer than the same weight of merino wool.
Alpacas are not killed for their fur. The Alpaca fur is mainly from baby Alpacas - or “cria” - which have died of natural causes as the weaker animals often perish in the harsh Andean winter. Alpacas can live for 20 years, promising a lifetime of shearing potential of far greater value than a single pelt.
