Alpaca Light Brown 100 grams

This colour is not as light as the name suggests, it is actually a medium warm brown with a reddish orange tinge. Spin it into a lovely brown yarn, which is a colour that can be quite difficult to dye using natural dyes.

Alpaca fibre has several advantages over sheep wool. Alpaca’s hollow fibres are warmer and smoother than wool, drape better and have a low prickle factor, making alpaca a great alternative to anyone who finds wool itchy.

Unlike wool, alpaca has minimal lanolin content, making it hypoallergenic in comparison with wool. The fibres have less scales than wool, and look brighter because they are better at reflecting light.

Alpaca can be as soft as cashmere, but it is more durable and hard wearing because it has a longer staple (about 80 mm). Our alpaca fibre is 24 to 26 micron in thickness.
