8 Reasons To Buy Great British Alpaca?
Alpaca Wool is the Fibre of the Gods Alpaca Wool was once known to Inca Royalty as the "Fibre of the Gods”. It is a soft, lightweight, lustrous fibre, second only to silk for strength, comparable to cashmere for luxury and more durable than both.
The hollow fibre in alpaca wool also creates a cool, dry environment in which dust mites are not able to breed, Therefore the wool and products do not aggravate asthma or other respiratory allergies triggered by dust mites. Unlike sheep’s wool. Alpaca wool is also naturally free from lanolin, a substance which can cause allergic reaction in some people.
While similar to sheep’s wool, alpaca wool is warmer and not prickly. In physical structure, alpaca fiber is somewhat akin to hair, being very glossy and silky. Perfect luxury for slumbering down in.
The product is entirely British, with little environmental impact in production. The majority of the wool comes from our own herd.
Alpaca wool is a hollow fibre which is the key to how Alpacas control their temperature, keeping them warm in winter and cool in summer.
