Alpaca, which is one of the world's warmest natural fibres. is second only to silk as the world's strongest natural fibre. It is hypo-allergenic, and thus is generally comfortable for people unable to wear garments made from sheep's wool. Coming in a wide variety of natural shades, from white through rose-grey, grey, fawn and brown to black, alpaca wool is marvellous for knitting, and makes up into luxurious fabric.

By the way: We don't want you to be disappointed; so please be aware that, except for a few pairs of socks, we do not sell green products. After all, who ever heard of a Green Alpaca?
That said, excepting the socks, we don't 'do' dyes of any sort or colour. Like our animals, our Home-grown Alpaca products are ALL TOTALLY NATURAL and SUSTAINABLE.
