Alpaca fashion

I have been paying attention to how often I see “alpaca” in the fashion pages and it seems to be increasing.  My daughter worked as store manager for The GAP  and they were bringing more alpaca fibered fashions into the store for sale.  Also, some of the “green” fashion businesses are also using alpaca, like Viva Terra http://www.vivaterra.com/pls/enetrixp/!stmenu_template.main

and Ten Thousand Villages . http://www.tenthousandvillages.com/catalog/search.php

 

Alpaca is such a nice fiber; softer than scratchy wool and no natural oils to interfere with producing fiber and garments.    Some of the big fashion designers are also incorporating alpaca into the materials they use.

Watch the fasion world as they get more into the “natural” fibers and start promoting more alpaca fashions.
