Inca Alpaca is soft, sturdy and very warm. Alpaca is a smoother fiber than wool, giving it a luster that many wools lack. It’s also a dry fiber; there’s no lanolin to worry about if you’re one of the folks who reacts to lanolin in wool. The great color range of Inca Alpaca make it great not only for colorwork, but also for finding that one perfect color for solid color garments and accessories.
