4 Reasons Why Alpaca Yarn Is Amazing!

In case you didn't know, alpaca yarn is a pretty prized commodity!  The Pauley Alpaca Company did a great job on their website explaining those and below are a few of the reasons that they listed:

  • Hypoallergenic - those who are allergic to wool won't have such problems with alpaca.  It contains no lanolin.
  • Moisture wicking - the fibers from alpacas will draw moisture away from you which helps it evaporate gradually.
  • Alpaca fiber is as soft as cashmere.
  • Alpaca fiber is warmer than wool AND also provides all-season comfort too because of its breathability.
