Experience "The fibre of the Gods" at Moonacre Alpacas's
The Incans called it "the fibre of the gods."
The art of spinning and weaving alpaca fleece was almost lost centuries ago when the Spanish Conquistadors tried to wipe out South America's alpaca population in an effort to destabilise their economy. Some alpaca remained, hidden in remote Altiplano.
During the Industrial Revolution, the closely guarded secret of alpaca fleece was rediscovered by the Europeans and this unique fibre was enjoyed once again. Despite alpaca farming going global, there was not enough of this luxury commodity to go around; it lost ground to newer and more cheaply manufactured synthetic fibres.
But the secret was not forgotten. The legacy lives on for a new generation at Moonacre Alpacas.
