Alpaca fiber is one of the finest natural fibers in the world. It is silky soft and lustrous, and comes in 22 natural colors.
Alpaca fiber has a hollow core. This allows the fiber to breathe and is why it is so comfortable. The hollow core in alpaca fibers trap pockets of air which act as insulators against both cold and heat.
“Mount Caesar Alpacas uses baby alpaca fiber exclusively in the production of its products, wherever possible.”
Alpaca fiber absorbs liquids and is why alpaca socks are so comfortable. The thermal and water absorption properties of alpaca blankets provide a more comfortable and sounder sleep.
Because alpaca fiber does not contain lanolin, it is naturally hypoallergenic.
A Fiber You Can Wear All Year!
Alpaca fiber is the only natural fiber that is warm in the winter and cool in the summer.
Alpaca fiber is sorted into different fiber classifications. The highest quality alpaca fiber is classified as Baby Alpaca. This fiber does not come from baby alpacas, called crias, but is the highest quality fiber with the smallest micron count.
Alpacas have become the darlings of American animal lovers! Indigenous to the Andes Mountains of South America, Alpacas were first imported to the United States in 1984.
Because alpacas have adapted to living at a very high altitude in the Andes, where it can get very cold, they have evolved to produce a warm, soft and luxurious fiber that is an absolute pleasure to wear.
