ALPACA WOOL AMAZING QUALITIES: HYPOALLERGENIC
If you find more traditional materials irritating, clothing made from alpaca might just provide a solution.
Due to its incredible properties, alpaca is considered by the fashion world as one of the most natural exclusive fibers,
it allows making all kinds of garments, from extremely fine and light products to thick blankets,
it is also available in over twenty natural shades, a fiber that is soft like cashmere and stronger than wool.
It’s incredibly soft on the skin, luscious to touch, and does not produce lanolin, a content that some attribute to itchiness.
Lanolin holds dust and microscopic allergens that often create allergies associated to wool, irritating the skin causing itching, redness and blisters.
These symptoms are common on more sensitive areas of the skin and around the wrists and neckline.
The natural lack of lanolin means alpaca fiber is hypoallergenic for most people, and safe for allergy sufferers to wear.
High grade alpaca, like “Baby Alpaca”, have a minimal prickle factor.
Therefore, it does not feel itchy and most people can wear alpaca clothing comfortably.
However, there is another reason why you may find alpaca wool more comfortable to wear:
it’s much softer than sheep’s wool. By nature, the fleece is naturally smoother and the fibers are shorter,
all of which can contribute to your comfort levels when it’s worn.
