The Alpaca Clothing Benefits
Alpaca clothing is great for boy and girls of all ages. The material is so soft, light, and durable that you just can’t beat it. It is the material to use if you are looking to design the most luxurious clothes you can possible design.
One of the main Alpaca clothing benefits is that Alpaca fiber is one of the softest fibers in the world. Most people who complain of the itch associated with wool are experiencing the thick fibers rubbing against their skin. The main difference between wool and Alpaca is how thick the fiber strands are individually.
The itchy wool that you remember in blankets and socks as a kid typically measure over 25 microns. Alpaca fiber is usually found to be around 15 microns in thickness. This makes it much softer to the touch and less likely to give you the itchy sensation that most remember about wool garments.
When it comes to warmth, most of us again complain things to how warm wool is. Wool blankets have long been a staple to emergency backpacks across the world because they are light and keep you so warm. What people do not realize is that an Alpaca blanket is three to five times warmer depending on what stats you are looking at.
Because Alpaca are native to mountainous regions in South America, they have to produce a warm coat in order to stay warm. This is another one of the huge Alpaca clothing benefits because we do not need to blend the fiber with thicker fiber to make the clothing warmer.
Alpaca fleece is very light and feathery compared to many other comparable options. If you are looking for a garment to be light and flowing, while still keeping your warm, then you might want to look at Alpaca!
A huge Alpaca clothing benefit is that Alpaca fiber is eater, wind, and stain resistant. It will shield you from the wind and the rain on a cold day. This allows it to last longer than just about any other material used to make clothes.
Since Alpacas do not produce lanolin, their fiber is hypoallergenic. You don’t have to worry about buying something made of this for a child that is prone to allergies!
