Alpaca wool Untreated, roughly cleaned, from the highest quality alpaca raw fibers in natural colors.
This raw wool can be used for all kinds of handicrafts and handicrafts, for example for felting and spinning.
It is made from 100% alpaca wool and 100% natural colors (undyed) and thus has all the good properties that alpaca wool has to show (see under "Special features of alpaca wool").
The wool is only roughly pre-cleaned and may need to be washed and combed more thoroughly for further processing for special purposes.
The alpaca wool comes from the animals of the craftsmen's association "Alto Andina" from Santa Rosa de Mazo Cruz / Puno / Peru, who have been processing their product "Alpaca wool" themselves into knitwear for several years.
Special features of alpaca wool:
Alpaca wool is very popular in the textile industry worldwide, as it is one of the finest natural fibers in the world alongside cashmere and silk. A silky shiny, extraordinarily fine, but nevertheless very resistant, elastic hair fleece makes alpaca wool a noble and yet very weatherproof material.
Unlike sheep's wool or cashmere, the alpaca hair is hollow on the inside. This gives the material unique thermal properties. In the cold, the warmed air is stored and in summer the warm air is transported outside. These outstanding properties make alpaca the ideal wool fiber for the whole year - summer and winter.
The alpaca fiber creates a very comfortable fit because it is much lighter than sheep or cotton. Garments made from this fiber have an incomparable style of elegance and unique color intensity.
Here is an overview of the properties of alpaca fiber
- moisture control
- not scratchy
- protects against UV radiation
- 22 natural shades
