Alpaca fiber is soft as cashmere, warmer than wool, water repellent, flame retardant and contains no lanolin, making it hypo-allergenic (not "itchy" like wool).
This fiber is a beautiful natural fawn from our 1/2 accoyo male, Maestro. It makes a ribbon-winning yarn, as you can see in the spin-off entry photo (1st Place, MAPACA 2012). Certified sorter graded this fleece non-hairy with a score of 8 (out of 10) for uniformity and luster, and with 6" staple regrowth per year, it is great for handspinning! It is sold raw off the alpaca and has not been washed. $1.75/oz. OR purchase a full pound (16 oz.) for the discounted price of $25.00/lb.
