A bulky, soft luxury bulky fibre with a natural crimp and soft lustre. Alpaca has been used for 100's of years in woven fabrics and is considered to be a luxury fibre. Can be spun into fine soft yarn or blended very successfully with sheep wool to produce a soft blend. Please note that baby alpaca can be difficult to dye particularly in the darker colours.
Can be spun to produce a very fine soft yarn. There are limitless possibilities for blending baby alpaca with other wool. Not really recommended for dyeing on its own as baby alpaca can be difficult to dye particularly in the darker colours. However some lovely effects can be achieved when dyeing in a blend.
