Alpacas are mainly bred for their excellent wool. Alpaca wool is shiny and silky, soft and luxurious. Alpaca wool is considered to be 7 times warmer and 3 times stronger than sheep's wool, it is not prickly and does not contain lanolin, so it is allergy-free. Wool is available in 22 different natural shades. The carding, spinning, and weaving of alpaca wool is very similar to that of sheep's wool. Alpacas are generally sheared once a year in the spring. Each shearing yields about 2.2 to 4.5 kg of wool. Wool quality is measured in microns (mc-micron), but other properties are also taken into account, such as wool uniformity. They also determine the price of wool.

An interesting fact about alpacas: Alpaca is considered the fiber of royal
The alpaca breeders were dedicated to generating the finest quality wool during the Inca Empire. They accomplish this by getting 22 base colors and 250 nuances of yarn out of the alpacas. It consists of higher quality than what we are getting today; while it is considered a finer one, it was the only royals who were allowed to start wearing the alpaca fabrics.
