Do you use chemicals or petroleums?
Alpaca Fiber is 100% natural and is harvested with minimal impact on the environment and no harm to the alpaca’s when shearing.
No petroleum or chemicals used in the manufacturing process, only natural oils. We DO NOT use Cedar, Lavender, Pine, Limonene, Tea Tree, Soy, Citronella, Sandalwood, Borate, or Titanium in our process.
How much fiber is produced? Do you have any shipment restrictions? Do you use chemicals?
Alpaca fiber regenerates annually usually supplying about 10 pounds of fiber per alpaca. Due to the fiber being light weight and low bulk mass, the use of transportation fuels and other resources are minimized. Alpaca fiber is a naturally biodegradable product. It eliminates the disposal problems that are derived from petroleum products.
Does your natural oil treatment/insecticide have to be utilized?
No, but if you don't utilize our oil treatment/insecticide the alpaca insulation will have to be in cased in either plastic or paper.
Option: If you have a treatment that you would like use to use we can.
