Alpaca has rightly been called the "fiber of the gods". It's unique properties make it one of the most highly sought luxury fibers in the world. Alpaca comes in over 22 natural colors. Lacking the oils or lanolin found in other types of fibers, alpaca does not have the "prickle factor" and can be worn by those who are allergic to wool or other fleece.
A garment made from alpaca will be lightweight, soft and much warmer than anything made from wool. A quality alpaca garment will also last for a very long time with very simple care.
Have fun shopping our store! We're always adding new items so you never know what you'll find!
