Alpaca Fibre

Alpaca fleece is one of the most luxurious fibres in the world!

 

While the llama was bred to be big and strong, when it come to alpacas it’s all about the fleece. Coming in 22 different colours, and all the shades in between, it’s one of the softest, yet strongest, fibres available.

 

Some NIAG members send there fleeces off to be processed in mills in Britain. Other process it themselves, making a range of alpaca products from hats and scarves, to teddy bears and felted toys. We’ve even seen alpaca felted soap and alpaca cat beds!
