Alpaca fleece comes in 22 natural colors and sells for approximately $5.00 an oz. Annual fiber yield is about 5 to 10 lbs. per alpaca.
Alpaca fiber can be easily dyed and has a feel similar to fine cashmere. This highly desirable finished product offers a lifetime of wear, insulation and shape.
The alpaca has been meticulously bred for thousands of
years to yield a beautiful fleece while minimizing guard hair (the prickle component found in other fleece like wool). As a result, alpaca is lightweight and soft. It can be easily worn by people that tend to be sensitive to
other natural fibers. It is in especially high demand to those looking for absolute perfection in an all natural finished product.
