-Fibres are nearly completely hollow, wherease wool contains only pockets of air. This additional space creates greater thermal capacity.
-Alpaca is said to be three times warmer than wool.
-Since it lacks lanolin, it is considered to be hypoallergenic.
-Equivalent softness, more warmth and higher wicking properties than merino wool.
-Alpaca has one of the highest tensile strengths of any natural fibre, second only to silk and some bast fibres (such as hemp and linen).
-Lower tendency to shrink than wool and cashmere.
-Historically, an Incan man's wealth was counted in textiles made from alpaca fibre.
