Alpaca being a hollow fibre is naturally much softer than sheep s wool. Interestingly it is also much stronger and warmer than wool. Being water resistant alpaca material easily wicks away moisture making it less likely to absorbs smells. Classed too as hypoallergenic being lanolin free this highly prized fabric is ideal for hats, jackets and throws. Historically reserved for the Inca royalty alpaca is now recognized universally as an eco fabric so we are VERY proud to be promoting our own WELSH WOVEN ALPACA products.
