Did you know all these benefits about alpaca?

Alpaca is a fantastic fibre, below are some of the many benefits:

100% alpaca doesn’t tend to bobble or pill

It is extremely hard wearing and durable, the garments last years and years without loosing their shape

Alpaca is lightweight yet extremely insulating

It is the viable luxurious alternative to cashmere

It is soft, smooth and silky to touch and has a shiny lustre

Alpaca has a wonderful drape which flatters the wearer

It doesn’t contain lanolin, so it could be classed as hypoallergenic
