Saltaire is known in the county of Yorkshire, England, than the creation of a remarkable nineteenth-century industrialist who was also a social reformer. The solid stone Houses are a lasting testament to a powerful textile mill owner who wanted good living conditions for its workers.

But he was not always a powerful mill owners. He was once a young man on his way to the wool trade, charged with the purchase of wool from the port. It was during his travels over land to the Lancashire coast and the port of Liverpool, that he came some unwanted bales of unusual wool.

Back in Bradford he experiments. There was potential for a very soft, luxurious fabric, if only he could overcome the technical challenges of weaving. He succeeded, and Alpaca is a "must wear" fabric of time.

Centuries earlier, in the Andes, the wool of the alpacas had reserved for royalty-free, to assess the Combination of softness and warmth without weight. After the Spanish conquest, but this proved to be heard for several centuries. Alpaca wool was in the world away from ignoring the now impoverished hill tribes.

Now, in the early twenty-first century has become quite popular to keep alpacas in several regions of the world not only as a professional managed portfolios to considerable alpaca farms, but also in smaller numbers as a hobby. One challenge is to maintain the high quality of wool. Breeding and selection of Animals, animal husbandry and nutrition and standards are important factors. Qualified shearing, sorting and processing of alpaca fleece wool touch and give consistent color is crucial for the realization of a luxury fabric.

The alpaca fleece is very different in color, with many different shades of gray and brown, the extremes of White and black. The nature of alpaca wool varies among breeds. The Suri fleece hangs in long strands like dreadlocks, while wool huacaya is shorter and curling. In both cases, exceptionally soft wool from younger animals is highly valued.

The warmth of alpaca clothing, even with little thickness and low weight is on the air-filled cavities of the fibers. Unlike sheep, alpacas, this is not lanolin in the fleece. The disadvantage of this feature is less water resistance. However, although of course Lanolin has many advantages, it also represents an allergy problem for part of the population, and another advantage of the alpaca is that they are safe and convenient by many who do not wear wool can be worn.

As with the fleece from other animals such as sheep, is the conversion of an alpaca fleece alpaca yarn into usable a multi-step process. Some hobbyists and enthusiasts, such as cottage industries through the entire sequence of things to do. Others prefer their fleece to wool mills where the carding and spinning for it can be done and the wool in a form suitable for knitting, or withdraw weaving. Others sell the fleece, either directly or through marketing cooperatives in the wool market, they are not even operate garment industry, rather concentrate on the animals and the production of the wool itself rather than its end products.

Keeping Alpacas because their wool can be a rewarding experience, whether as a cattle business or a hobby. However, this should be taken only after serious thought and careful investigation the many different aspects of animal husbandry, wool processing and marketing – not to mention seven days a week non-stop commitment.

“People ought to try to make their horses happy,” wrote Jacob Biggle’s wife Harriet in The Biggle Horse Book in 1894. “A happy, cheerful horse will do more work and live longer, and thus be more profitable to its owner, than one whose temper is kept constantly ruffled, whose disposition is soured by ill-usage, and whose peace of mind is often disturbed by the crack of the whip, the hoarse…
