Benefits of Alpaca Fiber (Part 2)

The benefits for alpaca fiber seem to be endless. The fact that this material is all natural, hypoallergenic and not harmful to the alpacas is such a major factor. From not having to worry about wrinkles to getting to wear material that is soft and cozy there seems to be endless reasons to choose alpaca products.

  1. Low static electricity

Alpaca fiber has low static electricity. This means that even in the cooler months when your clothes are normally sticking to you and giving off static electricity alpaca clothing and accessories will not.

2. Water repellent

Alpaca fiber is water repellent. This helps for when it rains or for any kind of sweating. The water does not seep into the alpaca fiber like it does with other fibers. This helps to keep you both dry and comfortable during the cooler months.

3. Stain resistant

Since alpaca fiber does not hold water it makes the material virtually stain resistant. This makes clothing and accessories low maintenance and able to wear anywhere you go without having to worry about spilling anything and ruining your clothes or accessories.You won’t have to worry about a stain ruining your favorite article of clothing anymore.

4. Resists acquired odors

In the same way that alpaca fiber is stain resistant it is also odor resistant. The sweat does not seep into the material like with other clothes and accessories holding onto that smell all day. In the winter especially when you dress warm and then enter a warm building it can be easy to sweat a little. You no longer have to worry about feeling or smelling gross with alpaca fiber.

5. Biodegradable and natural

Not only is alpaca fiber all natural and hypoallergenic, but it is also biodegradable. It’s a great fiber for people who are looking to switch to a more organic life style and be more conscious about how their actions are effecting the earth. With alpaca fiber you won’t have to worry about it harming any animals or the earth.

6. Naturally wind-proof

Alpaca fiber is naturally wind proof. Windy days that normally give you a chill even through all your layers won’t be able to get through your alpaca clothing or accessories. It stops the wind from chilling your body. Alpaca fiber is the perfect material to keep you warm and cozy this winter.

There are still so many other benefits of alpaca products. The list of reasons to choose alpaca fiber over other material is overwhelming. Companies like Four Acres Living offer a variety of alpaca products including different colors of alpaca yarn.
