Alpacas are considered an environmentally low-impact livestock animal. Native to the Andes region of South America, they have been domesticated and used for fiber over thousands of years. As opposed to other grazing livestock, alpacas are modest in size, have gentle grazing behaviors and do not uproot the existing vegetation. This allows a sustainable ranching process that maintains healthy topsoil. Humane shearing of the Alpaca fiber helps the animals regulate their body temperature and ensures a continual source of fiber production.
Alpaca fiber is naturally hypoallergenic, suitable for allergy sufferers and other sensitive uses, such as baby clothes. It has unique insulating properties making it warmer when compared to other natural fibers and results in a lighter, more breathable product. While incredibly durable, it lasts longer than most any other luxury fiber, including other wools, cashmere, and silk.
These products with the unique properties described, are available for purchase at https://www.aliciaadamsalpaca.com
