Does this skein look like wool to you, Nicole? It is soft, fuzzy, and has a wispy quality to it.

Keep the pH of the wool on the acidic side of 7. Alkaline pH will harm the wool and make it coarse. If the pH is high enough, the wool fibers will dissolve completely.
The fiber will not burn unless it is in direct contact with a flame and therefore offers the wearer greater safety. High strength and elasticity make this fiber highly durable and lasting longer. Alpaca is flame resistant, meeting the standards of the US Consumer Product Safety Commission's rigid testing specifications as a Class 1 fiber for use in clothing and furnishings.
