Welcome to North River Alpacas! Our alpacas are raised for their fleece which will become beautiful fiber.  
The benefits of alpaca fiber are many. It is light and breathable, soft and warm. Alpaca is a hollow fiber, lighter and warmer than wool. Alpaca fiber is strong and durable. It is considered to be hypoallergenic due to its lack of lanolin and need for excessive processing. Alpaca fibers will wick the moisture, which makes it a great fiber for socks and apparel. Alpaca socks will keep your feet dry all day long. Wear alpaca next to your skin, it's soft and never scratchy.
