The Benefits of Alpaca Fleece March 27 2017

The Up-and-Comer in the Wool World

This luxurious natural fibre is similar to sheep's wool in that it makes fabulously rich yarn, clothing, and blankets, but it has the added benefit of being warmer, softer, and it doesn't contain the lanolin that some people are allergic to.

Interestingly, there are two types of wool growing Alpaca - Huacaya, which grows fluffy, crimped fleece that's great for spinning into yarn, and Suri, which is great for woven clothing and blankets.

At the Real Wool Shop we carry a variety of beautiful Alpaca products from leggings and thigh-highs to shawls and blankets.
