Rooting Alpaca Hair?

Is alpaca hair easy to work with? Does it root well? I am thinking about buying some from MacPherson’s.
Thanks in advance! :smile:

I use it all the time, I love it. It’s very soft.

I love to root with Alpaca. It’s very newborn feeling and stick straight. It is the softest ever. Some have reported a lot of breakage and hair slipping out but I haven’t had those issues at all. I usually use Alpaca over Prisma so it is mostly on sparsely rooted heads. I don’t think I’ve done a thick head of Alpaca.

Alpaca is sooo soft, makes it feel much more like baby hair! Mohair looks like baby hair if rooted well, but alpaca really trumps it when you comparison feel them both!

It’s been a while since I rooted with it but I found it more difficult to root with than mohair. I need to try it again.
