While the quality and plush nature of alpaca fleece is no new discovery, the high quality fiber is gaining popularity in the fashion industry faster than ever. This is good news for alpaca farmers and fans throughout the country. Not only is demand increasing, but visibility as well.
The trend has been on the rise for some time now, with US figures for registered alpacas more than doubling from 2004 to 2010. With more and more high-end designers opting to use alpaca fleece in their clothing lines, including a summer line by Pitusa (an eco-friendly and extremely chic company in Miami, FL), these numbers will continue to grow.
Fashion designers around the globe are winning awards for clothing featuring super-soft alpaca fleece, and because of it, more and more are following suit. Here at Rosehaven, we couldn’t be more excited! These are big times in the alpaca farming world, and from the looks of it, things are just getting started!
