Alpacas have now been in the United States for over 20 years. See why they are the fastest growing livestock endeavor in the nation. Alpacas produce one of the world’s finest and most luxurious natural fibers. Alpaca fiber is very fine thus making it one of the softest natural fibers available. Originally only Inca Royalty was allowed to wear the alpaca fiber. Alpaca is as soft as cashmere and comes in more natural colors than any other fiber producing animal. Alpaca fiber is warmer and stronger than other natural fibers. Alpaca is typically non-allergenic because it is a very clean fiber that contains no grease, lanolin or oils. The vast majority of people allergic to sheep wool are NOT allergic to alpaca!
Alpaca Threads, the on the farm gift store, will be OPEN with a wide variety of finished alpaca products and special sales only giving this day! See one of the largest stores of alpaca garments in the Midwest. There is yarn, roving, scarves, socks, sweaters, hats and many other finished alpaca products.
