Alpacas do not produce lanolin so their fleece is hypo- allergenic. Alpacas are sheared every year like sheep. Alpaca fleece compares to cashmere as this is the closest fiber to it. Alpaca fleece is very soft and not picky like wool. It is forgiving meaning you can wash it in the washer and dry it in the dryer. I had a pair of alpaca socks that were too big and i put them in the dryer on hot to shrink them a bit- didn't work! I cannot spin right now due to a car accident in July, 2015, so most of our alpaca products come from Peru, where alpacas originate, but John spins some. The villagers are paid for their handmade creations and no two products are exactly alike. Villages in Peru rely heavily on this export and as such take great pride in their work. We have alpaca products for every budget and every lifestyle. We carry alpaca Socks (plain to fancy, short to long), - They are great for hunters and people who work outside. They wick away sweat from your feet so they are warm in winter and cool in summer. They also breathe well. Scarves- We have scarves including many new styles from plain to fancy, long to short. Anything you need as a professional at work or for a weekend hike. Hats- From "Russian" style fur hats to basic knit hat to wild and reversible. Gloves, mittens and glittens- All sorts of gloves, fingerless gloves that turn into mittens and mittens. We now carry various designs of sweaters, capes, ponchos and wraps. From keeping warm on the way to work to a night on the town or a formal event. We have various sizes of adorable stuffed alpacas, teddy bears and other animals, all made from alpaca fleece. We have many different colors of 100% baby alpaca yarn as well as knitting and crochet supplies.
