"White Fiber" White Alpacas have had a head start in breeding selection over color. This is due to white fiber's greater value in commercial production because it is easily dyed. Much of the international market for breeding alpacas is based on the prospect of large, white, commercial herds. This is found in the international market of merino wool which rose to the top due to its fineness, color clarity and consistency. Mohair(produced from white Angora goats)also has a strong commercial market. However, it can't compete as widely, due to its hair-like properties and limitation in textile values. White Alpaca is gaining greater and greater interest and moving forward steadily into the white commercial fiber market. White is, without a doubt, the leader in commercial Alpaca.
