What Is Alpaca Fiber?
Considered once a gift from the gods and the most important relic of the history of the Incas.
These animals are known as camelids since they are similar to camels, and alpacas are native to South America.
There are two breeds of this four-legged animal: the Huacaya alpaca and the Suri alpaca.
The types of fiber derived from each of these types of alpacas are equally prized for different reasons, fiber derived from alpacas can be either heavy or light depending on how it is spun, which means that it is ideal for a number of different kinds of garments.
Compared to sheep wool, alpaca wool is considerably softer, and it is also more durable.
About needle felting?
Needle felting is a dry felting method using either wool or alpaca as we do. It is quick and easy, and inexpensive, requiring very few tools and taking up very little space.
You can needle felt when you have just a few spare minutes or for hours on end we at Lanart offer both Whale Shark: Felted Alpaca as a finished sculpture and needle felting kits, please call us at 877 alpacas or click here
