LuxuriousAlpaca wool is beautifully soft to the touch, so much so that alpaca fibers are often compared to their more expensive cashmere counterparts. Another reason why alpaca wool clothing has become highly desirable is because the soft fibers give off a lustrous sheen similar to silk, so not only does it feel gorgeous, but also has a stunningly glossy appearance under the light. Alpaca also comes in sixteen natural shades but can easily be dyed using synthetic or plant-based dyes to create a wonderfully colorful garment in a vast array of shades. From hat and glove sets to stunning wraps and shawls, alpaca clothing looks just as good as it feels!
