Anyone familiar with Alpaca?
I have been thinking for many years about raising Alpacas, so I wanted to get more familiar with Alpaca products. I purchased several throws and scarfs made with 100% Alpaca from an on-line store as gifts for Christmas. I am in the South so It's not like I could go to the store or a local farm. Anyway, they just arrived and I am not 100% thrilled. They each look like a cat has been sleeping on them. They have all these loose single hairs sticking all about. I pulled on some and they are quite long and come right out of the product. Is this right? Shouldn't the Alpaca be completely smooth and free of loose hairs? My delusion is that the Alpaca would have been spun and then a final product would have been made and all hairs would be contained. Thoughts?
