Alpaca Wool

Posted on Thursday, September 3rd, 2009 at 2:50 am

what is alpaca wool used for?

I bought some at an auction by mistake I am told it needs be spun first

'Alpaca fleece is a lustrous and silky natural fiber. While similar to sheep’s wool, it is warmer, not prickly, and bears no lanolin, which makes it hypoallergenic[6][7]. Without lanolin, it does not repel water. It is also soft and luxurious. In physical structure, alpaca fiber is somewhat akin to hair, being very glossy. The preparing, carding, spinning, weaving and finishing process of alpaca is very similar to the process used for wool.'

so basically it's wool, but better

knit yourself a jumper!
or a nautical themed pashmina afghan

whatever else it is wool is used for

SOCKS!
