Alpaca Fashions Go Mainstream with Retailer Supporting USA Small Businesses
“In this age of high stress living, many people are turning to the natural appeal of alpaca. They see the beauty and gentle nature of the animal as well as its natural appeal”, says Brian Schieber, PurelyAlpaca.com President, himself once an owner of a small alpaca farm.
Alpaca is still a relatively unknown clothing fiber in North America. It has been compared to cashmere and angora though alpaca advocates point out its superior qualities. The recent reawakening of interest in the fiber arts (spinning, knitting and weaving) has seen a great interest in alpaca fiber whether raw or as yarn. “Alpaca fiber is currently extremely popular as a material for warm and naturally wicking socks”, says Schieber.
Along with 100s of products made commercially in the USA and South America, PurelyAlpaca offers unique artistic creations, clothing or otherwise which utilize alpaca. The company is always on the lookout for new and interesting creations made from this extremely versatile natural fiber, especially when these creations support USA alpaca farms.
