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.
Compared to sheep wool, alpaca wool is considerably softer, and it is also more durable.
Ethically Obtaining Yarn
This fiber is one of the most ethical, eco-friendly, and cruelty-free products. Alpacas spend their entire lives wandering freely in their natural habitat, Peruvian Andes. They’re not killed for their wool, but caught by the farmers and gently sheared. Experts shear the alpacas annually in order to remove their plentiful coats. Then another set of experts sort the fiber into the various micron counts. After this happens they are released back into the wild. It’s in a farmer’s best interest to let them live as long as possible because they regrow their fiber.
