Alpaca - a domestic artiodactyl animal descended from vicuna
(vigoni). Bred in the highlands of South America (Andes).
Alpaca growth does not exceed one meter, they weigh about 70 kilograms
and have a soft and long rune (on the sides its length reaches 15-20
cm.). It is valued, first of all, for its wool, which has all the properties of sheep, but is much lighter in weight. Fibers
Alpaca is more direct than sheep’s wool, non-creaky and different
extraordinary richness and silkiness with a subtle sheen. Similar
qualities are not found in any other type of fur.
The fur itself is divided into several types: a fiber with a diameter of 16 microns is called “Royal Alpaca”, at 17.5 microns - “Baby Alpaca”, 23.5 microns - “Super soft Alpaca”, at 32 microns “Adult Alpaca”. These names do not reflect the age of the animals or other phenotypic characteristics. For example, the name ’Baby’ is used for yarn, fabric, etc., where the average fiber diameter is 22.5 microns. Alpaca wool is three times stronger and seven times warmer than wool
sheeps. In addition, unlike wool
merino in Alpaca fur is completely absent lanolin and others
organic fats. This means that dust mites do not live in wool and
fur does not cause allergies associated with dust mites. it

products in children's rooms and bedrooms. Fat free very
resistant to pollution, so that carpets, bedspreads and any other product
Alpaca fur will remain clean for a long time.
