Alpaca not only feels good next to your skin, but it is also prized for its thermal properties, fineness, silkiness, softness and durability (it has a longer shelf-life than merino wool and any other fibers).
- Soft & Silky
- Unique thermal properties due to microscopic air bubbles found inside the hair. This allows the fiber to "breath"
- It is also naturally flame resistant
- Colours are rich natural shades.
