What is Alpaca Fiber

What is Alpaca Fiber
The yarn from an Alpaca is considered to be the finest in the world. The Alpaca fiber is stronger and many times warmer than sheep wool. It is incredibly soft. Each fiber is semi-hollow, creating a naturally lightweight and thermal warmth that is far superior to other natural fibers. The Alpaca is a member of the camellia family, found in the wild mountainous regions of the South American Andes, and later domesticated by Indians. For several thousand years, Andean peoples domesticated and selectively bred Alpacas. They produce a large array of superior yarns with over 20 different colors with very fine yet dense fibers
