Why buy merino when you can buy alpaca? Alpaca is much softer than merino when comparing at the same micron (thickness of fibre)and comparable with Cashmere.
NutZ about ALPACA is my own label, selling items made from my own alpaca fleeces or locally sourced alpaca fleeces. Alpaca is a luxury fibre with no 'itch factor' and is therefore able to be worn next to the skin. Alpaca come in 22 natural colours and most of my products are the natural colour (undyed).
