Welcome to The Alpaca World
The History of Alpaca Wool
Alpaca was often referred to as the “the poor man’s cashmere” because of its affordability and ultra soft fiber. In recent years, it’s become a common fiber to knit and crochet, and people can’t get enough!
Alpacas are very adorable and can be brought up in a lot of settings. Identified as gentle beasts, their fibers can be classified according to softness into various types. Even adult alpacas are able to develop “baby alpaca” fiber, they simply grow less than the younger ones.
