Does alpaca wool itch?

Compared to lambswool, alpaca is smoother and softer to skin. Silk-alpaca and 100 % baby alpaca products are generally softer than products made of 100 % fine special alpaca.

Machine-made garments initially feel a little more rough compared to hand-knitted products. In our products we opt for densely knitted garments to ensure longevity and durability to our knitwear, which may make the garment feel a little coarse in the beginning. The feel of the knitwear will soften significantly after it has been worn a couple of times. The garment will adjust to the shape of your body.

You can speed up the softening by steaming or brushing the sweater. Wearing an undershirt in the beginning may help as well.
