Alpaca wool certainly has bragging rights here. It's simply the warmest all-weather friendly fiber. Alpaca fibers contain microscopic air pockets, providing great insulation keeping you super warm during the winter. These same air pockets allow for outstanding breath-ability, thus keeping you cool in the summer.
Alpacas are shorn, without harm, every twelve to eighteen months. Because of its soft texture, alpaca fiber is sometimes compared to cashmere but it is much more sustainable and cruelty-free. The fiber also has the luster of silk, making it even more coveted. Alpaca is just as warm as wool, yet it is a mere 1/3 the weight.
Alpaca fiber is also naturally hypoallergenic. Most people who are sensitive to wool find that they can wear alpaca without the itching or irritation they feel from wool because alpaca fiber is smooth. Additional performance characteristics include stretch, water repellency, and odor reduction.
Color difference in photos comes from difference of shade and sunlight.
