Alpaca- the new favor of knitting

Alpaca fibre is a lustrous and silkynatural fiber. While similar to sheep’s wool, it is warmer, not prickly, andbears no lanolin, which makes it hypoallergenic. Without lanolin, it does notrepel water. It is also soft and luxurious. In physical structure, alpaca fiberis somewhat akin to hair, being very glossy. The preparing, carding, spinning,weaving and finishing process of alpaca is very similar to the process used forwool. Alpaca fiber is also flame-resistant, and meets the US Consumer ProductSafety Commission's standards.

Alpacas are typically sheared once per yearin the spring. Each shearing produces approximately five to ten pounds (2.2-4.5kilograms) of fiber per alpaca. An adult alpaca might produce 50 to 90 ounces(1420–2550 grams) of first-quality fiber as well as 50 to 100 ounces (1420–2840grams) of second- and third-quality fiber.
