What makes alpaca special? Alpaca is warmer, stronger, lighter, and softer than other quality contenders for high-end luxury materials such as cashmere and merino wool. Alpaca is famous for its luxurious fleece and versatility. It won’t shrink or pill if given correct care, it is hypoallergenic and even has water-resistant properties. Alpaca absorbs little humidity from the surrounding environment and it is thermally insulating, making it perfect for winter wear as well as outdoor sports such as hiking and skiing.
