what is alpaca


Alpaca is starting to be noticed because it has a lot of benefits over some of the competing materials such as cashmere and wool. Hi, I'm Kate Robertson, founder of Mayu. The alpaca is native to the Andes Mountains of South America, to Bolivia, Peru and Chile.

Alpaca is used mainly for clothing, for sweaters, for throws. Its an eco-friendly fiber. Its hypoallergenic. Alpaca fiber is known for its thermal and insulating properties. So, its not very heavy but at the same time its going to keep you very warm. Alpaca is also shrink resistant, wrinkle resistant and odor resistant.

When you feel it youre going to see how soft it is. It has a natural luster and a natural sheen, which makes it really beautiful. The Alpaca fiber is wear-resistant, which means its not going to pill and its going to last you a lifetime.
