alpaca there is one main reason why consumers can't get enough– it simply feels better to wear than any other textile..... Alpaca feels better because it is the lightest and strongest natural fiber known, but that's not all of what makes it so special. When it comes to softness, it is on par with cashmere, and more rare. For every three tons of cashmere harvested, only one ton of alpaca is gathered. The epicenter for alpaca is Peru, while cashmere is produced and processed in Iran and Afghanistan. . . . . . .
