Why Alpaca Clothing?
About alpaca fiber
Alpaca has been a prized fiber for thousands of years. Its silky texture clothed Incan kings long before the current high-fashion trend in alpaca wear. And it has incredible attributes. Soft,warm,lightweight – the list goes on. It’s truly an amazingclothing fiber that has, up to thispoint,remained untapped.
Alpaca fiber is soft
Woop!Wear uses only the finest alpaca fiber available—what the industry calls ”baby alpaca,” which is less than 21 microns thick. This compares to the thickness of fine, Merino sheep’s wool, but alpaca has a softer feel. (A micron is one millionth of a meter, or 1/25,000 of an inch. The term “baby alpaca” refers not to the age of the animal, but to the fineness of the fiber.)
Alpaca fiber has a flat, low-profile scale (about half that of sheep’s wool). This gives alpaca it’s wonderfully smooth feel.
Alpaca fiber has exceptional insulating qualities
It is lightweight, but also breathable and warm. Each fiber has a hollow core that provides insulation from the elements
Alpaca is very insulating, warmer than wool for the same weight. Alpaca is also breathable and has natural moisturewicking properties
