Raw Alpaca Fiber...

The Ideas are endless

Alpaca fleece is the natural fiber harvested from an alpaca. It is light or heavy in weight, depending on how it is spun. It is a soft, durable, luxurious and silky natural fiber. While similar to sheep’s wool, it is warmer, not prickly, and has no lanolin, which makes it hypoallergenic.

Alpaca fiber is much finer and warmer than wool. It has no natural grease and does not need cleaning before being spun into yarn. Alpaca is available in different colors, so spinners can work with the natural colors available without adding dyes. Some characteristics of alpaca fleece include:

*Natural fiber from animals

*Soft, lightweight, and luxurious fiber

*Durable

*Can be hand-washed or dry-cleaned

*Has little static

*Can be dyed

*Blends well with other fibers

Alpaca fiber is used for making knitted and woven items, similar to wool. These items include blankets, sweaters, hats, gloves, scarves, a wide variety of textiles and ponchos, sweaters, socks, coats, bedding in parts all over the world.

Local spinners in small mills all over the United States & other countries process alpaca fiber. There are also corporations that pool this type of fiber to create finished products. Most garments made with raw alpaca fleece are hand-made.

Many handcrafters make crafts such as alpaca fiber balls, birdnesting items, etc that doesn't take any spinning with the fiber.
