Why Choose Alpaca Products?
There is a certain oil in sheep’s wool, called lanolin, that usually can cause an allergic reaction. This allergic reaction is why you itch when wearing wool. Alpaca, however, does not have lanolin, and therefore is hypoallergenic and not at all itchy.
Softer, lighter, and warmer than Cashmere
Alpaca fiber is much softer than cashmere, while also being lighter and warmer (up to seven times warmer) than wool. The reason why this is so is because alpaca fiber has microscopic pockets that trap air, and in doing so creates an insulating layer. Essentially you’re wearing a natural thermal insulator.
