Why choose alpaca clothing?

If you’ve ever thought that alpacas seem similar to llamas, you’re not far off. Both are actually a part of the camelid family of species. Alpacas were domesticated by people roughly 5,000 years ago, but humans were using their wool long before that. In some civilizations like the Incan Empire, this wool was a luxury reserved only for royal use.
Thankfully, today, alpaca wool is within reach for all of us. It’s still recognized as a great fiber option for clothing, especially because it is an environmentally-friendly and renewable resource. When the alpaca’s coat reaches a certain length, it’s shorn and then the fleece is carded, spun, and washed. And this process can be repeated dozens of times.
However, those reasons aside, people also find that wearing this type of wool is much more comfortable than alternatives.

Alpaca Fiber Offers Better Warmth

Testing of alpaca fiber has shown that it’s up to three times warmer than sheep wool. The reason behind this has to do with alpaca hair being medullated. In plain terms, this means that it’s hollow in the center. Those hollow areas hold onto warmth better, compared to sheep hairs which are dense in the middle.

Alpaca Wool Is Hypoallergenic

Lanolin is a waxy substance that’s produced naturally among some animals (like sheep) and it can cause allergic reactions in people. Those who are sensitive to it may experience itching, red eyes, and blisters, to name a few symptoms.

Alpaca Fiber Is Naturally Wicking

Materials that are naturally wicking draw moisture away from the body and allow it to evaporate quickly, so you stay dry and comfortable. This feature is especially key for people who enjoy hunting, hiking, or simply being outdoors and are possibly in wet conditions or sweating from physical exertion.

It’s Softer

The most popular of all the benefits of alpaca wool is that it is extremely soft. Some even compare it to cashmere. The reason for this softness is that it has a lower micron count.
