ALPACA INFORMATION

Alpaca Fiber Structure

A

C U LT U R

Fibril (cortical cell)

The cuticle, or outer sheath of the fiber is made up of small scales. Alpacas have a relatively smaller scale relief which makes the fiber feel smoother than sheep’s wool.

"The cortical cells in Alpaca fibre constitute a variable fraction of the fibre mass, being lowest in coarse and highest in fine fibres where the fraction may be as high as 90%. Cortical cells are the load-bearing elements of the fibre, whereas the cuticle imparts the inherent aesthetic qualities of the fibre such as softness of handle and lustre. Other functions of the cuticle concern water repellence, felting during washing, and resistance to chemical and physical attack. The entire assembly is held together by a glue called intercellular cement." Stapleton – (1992)

Fiber Cross Section Huacaya Fiber Bilateral Cell Structure Medulla

Orthocortex Paracortex

Fiber that is crimped consists of two subcategories of cortex cells: the orthocortex and the paracortex. Research in 1953 by Japanese scientists found the orthocortex was always observed on the outside of the crimp. Huacaya fibers display this bilateral formation of cells but Suri does not. It is possible the orthocortex cells grow faster thus producing a crimp.

Follicle, Fiber & Medullation Medullary cells are formed at the dome of the papilla and are confined to the central region of the fibre as it develops up through the follicle. The medulla cells may break down before the fibre emerges, and if so, the center of the fibre will be empty (hollow). This phenomenon can be continuous or partial.

• Alpacas have two types of follicles — primary and secondary. • Primary follicles can produce guard hairs or primary fibers. • Secondary follicles produce (finer) secondary fibers. • Guard hairs are completely hollow with a wide medulla taking up 80-90% of the fiber in a lattice-like structure. Guard hairs are undesirable for the fiber market and breeders have worked hard to selectively breed them out. • Primary fibers can contain hollow pockets or they can be solid. The lower the micron the more chance the hair will be solid. Breeders are working to reduce the micron of these fibers to be more in line with secondary fibers to create a more uniform fleece. • Secondary fibers are generally finer in micron and are often solid, but some do show hollow pockets even in the very low micron range. • Generally, fibers lower in micron display less medullation (or areas that are hollow) than do higher micron fibers.

All Camelids generally boast a lower fiber scale relief than most other fiber bearing animals. Scales, formed as the fiber grows, create microscopic edges that have a significant impact on how the fiber feels to human touch. When magnified, the importance of the scales becomes crystal clear: the lower the relief, the smoother the hand. This is where alpaca fiber shines. Both Huacaya and Suri alpaca fiber have a lower scale relief than sheep’s wool and many other fibers. This gives fine grades of alpaca a smooth texture more suitable to producing luxurious, next-toskin garments.

Black hair is thicker than red, and as animals and humans age, each hair gets thicker. There are 25,400 microns in one inch.

machine. Woolen requires less processing than worsted yarn. Suited to all sorts of knitted garments including sweaters, hats, mittens, scarves and other items worn for warmth. The air pockets trapped between the irregularly arranged tiny wool fibers create spaces to trap body heat.

• AL

Worsted: A firmly twisted yarn generally made from longer stapled animals and a yarn weight category. Often used to make tailored or woven garments because of its superior drape. Worsted enhances excellent fiber to make wonderful high-quality material sought out by couture designers. Worsted yarns offer higher tensile strength than woolen yarns. Worsted yarn is generally tidier and smoother than woolen yarn. Worsted also refers to a weight of yarn, which can create confusion. Worsted yarns are suited to woven fabrics, which require exquisite drape due to the orderliness of fibers lined up parallel to one another. The most expensive and impressive suits are often created from worsted fiber. Worsted yarn is often used in luxury garments designed for long and lasting wear, classic style and elegance. Semi-worsted: According to Cameron Holt’s book A Definitive Guide to Alpaca Fibre, this type of yarn is “particularly suited for blends; however, it cannot produce yarns of the same fineness as that produced in the worsted process. The semi-worsted yarns are thicker (bulkier), less regular and weaker.“ He notes, “Suri is usually processed on a semi-worsted system using different machine settings to that of the Huacaya.” Woolen: A soft, light, lofty, stretchy yarn, woolen yarn holds a lot of air, which makes it an effective insulator and an excellent choice for knitting, by hand or

In their quest for gold, Spanish conquistadores decimated the advanced herds of alpacas the ancient peoples worked so hard to create in South America.

14

Modern breeders have only recently been able to match the fiber fineness achieved in preColumbian societies. This was proven by Dr. Jane Wheeler through scientific study of alpaca mummies. There are two types of alpacas: Huacayas and Suris. Huacayas have crimped fiber that stands perpendicular to their skin so they look fluffy, like a teddy bear. Suris have long bundles of locks that hang straight down from their skin, and they usually have a part along their back. Only about 10% of the world population of alpacas are Suris.

Alpaca fiber is one of the most incredible natural fibers known. It is soft, durable, hypo-allergenic, inflammable, insulative and beautiful. When a female alpaca is pregnant, she may vehemently spit at a male who has designs on mating with her. Alpaca manure is some of the best manure around for gardening and is considered nature’s best time-release pellet fertilizer. Alpacas often poop in a communal manure pile, making collecting the fertilizer easy. AC

Because alpacas live at high altitude, they are able to process oxygen more efficiently than other animals. In fact, scientists are currently studying their elliptical blood cells.

A

C

Alpacas do not have upper teeth but rather chew grass against their palates.

17

Alpacas, both Suris and Huacayas, are usually shorn once a year to ensure their health and comfort in hot weather months.

CO

Alpacas have soft, padded feet like a dog that are easy on pasture land and do not contribute to erosion like the hooves of some other fiber livestock.

16

Alpaca fiber comes in about 22 natural shades, according to who you ask. Some countries count more or less.

E.

Alpacas are not true ruminants, yet they have three stomachs for wringing the most nutrition possible from their food. In fact, they are able to absorb 50% more nutrients than sheep.

Alpacas must never be kept alone – they are herd animals and are happy and comfortable among others of their kind.

Alpacas are one of the few animals alive today that live alongside the wild animal they evolved from, vicuñas.

Alpacas produce little lanolin, which means their fiber must still be scoured to remove suint but doing so is easier than with sheep’s wool.

Alpacas were domesticated from wild vicuñas while llamas were domesticated from wild guanacos.

Alpaca teeth continue to grow and in their native homelands; they are worn down by the silica in the soil. In other regions, their teeth must be trimmed.
