About Fibre

Their luxurious fibre comes in the widest assortment of colors of any fibre bearing animal in the world.

The fibre on average is 20 to 36 microns (by comparison human hair exceeds 100 microns).

Alpaca fibre is strong and durable - a hollow fibre that is remarkably warm.

Non-allergenic fibre that repels water.

Only 4% of the total textile market represents alpaca fibre which leaves tremendous opportunity for breeders to get into highly specialized fibre markets.

Alberta has several exotic fibre mills to process this world renowned fibre.

Producers now have the option to join a fibre cooperative called the Canadian Camelid Fibre Coop.  The coop receives fibre from producers, classes it and then it is shipped to mills to produce consistent high quality end products that can be purchased by the producer.
