Angel Hair Alpacas was started in 2007 after several years of research, seminars, and farm visits. Our vision as a small family farm is to breed consistent highest quality, well cared for Alpacas and provide knowledgeable and accessible support and service to our customers.
Alpaca is a natural fiber that is cultivated from shearing animals one time per year. The animals are not hurt during this shearing. It is sorted into quality lots and products are made according to the quality of the fleece needed. Alpaca fleece is considered one of the finest fibers in the world! It is four to seven times warmer for its weight than wool. It has natural wicking properties far superior to wool, cotton or most man-made materials. Its strand strength is also far superior, therefore, clothing made from Alpaca fleece outlast most other materials. Because Alpacas do not produce lanolin, dander does not adhere to it so the fleece is considered hypo-allergenic. People who cannot wear cashmere, wool or angora are generally able to wear products made from Alpaca fleece. Angel Hair Alpacas selects high quality products, many made from locally produced fiber. When you invest in an Alpaca product from us, you are supporting small local and regional farmers, small textile mills and a growing national business. And, you are getting a finest quality, highly functional keepsake that you will be able to wear proudly for years!
