Alpaca wool is known as the "princesses" of wool, one of the most prestigious natural fabrics
The thin, hollow fibers creates the softness, light and thermal insulation that makes the alpaca wool one of the highest qualities. Since 1987 we have been raising alpacas for their wool. In the mountains of the Negev, the dry climate is ideal that help create the best quality wool. At our farm, we product the wool throughout all the stages, from the breeding, to the shearing and turning the wool into hanks of yarn.
The best time to start shearing the alpaca herd is early spring allowing the alpacas to get use to the summer sun, and lets them grow back enough wool for the cold winters. After we shear the alpacas, we take the wool and process it in the factory on site preparing the wool for the coming winter.
Every year with the coming of spring and the days start to get warmer, the alpacas are due for a haircut. For the Alpaca Farm, Passover is also the holiday for shearing our Alpacas!
Our shearing process is done by advanced machines that cause no discomfort to the alpacas. In our very on factory on the farm, we are able to overlook the whole process of creating the wool. The wool comes in 4 basic colors: black, brown, grey and white and from these there are about 32 natural tones (our wool is not dyed).
Our farm is one of the only farms where the entire process takes place under one roof – from birth to knitting
The Alpaca Wool
Softness – The wool is very soft and pleasant to touch. Due to the unique production process there are no "Sharp edges".
Thermal Isolation – Due to the special structure of the fibers, Alpaca wool offers exception isolation, both from cold and from got temperatures.
Lightweight- Alpaca wool weighs about half of Sheep wool.
Natural colors- All of the wool we produce is not dyed so it is available only in the natural colors: Black, White, Grey and Brown (as well 32 combinations). Our wool does not lose color over time.
Alpaca wool is considered among the best in the world for knitting. Due to its unique physical properties, it offers a combination of light weight, softness and thermal Isolation.
