T or F: no pure white mohair
Do I have to use angora if I want a pure white natural fiber yarn with a pronounced fuzziness?

Might be a silly question, but would Alpaca not work? (my dh's aunt raises them, I know I've seen them white! - and no, you can't all beg me for fiber from her, I need to get some for myself first! )

Is there alpaca yarn that is as fuzzy as mohair?

That is a better question - I have some handspun that is, imo, pretty fuzzy, but I have never held any store-bought that was all alpaca, and the handspun has a lot of slubs, which might be making it appear, to me (an newbie!) fuzzier.

Hmmmm...think think.........now I need to scour up close pics of fuzzy alpaca yarn........

What about Suri yarn? Most of them won't be 100% alpaca, but it will be white, and fuzzy!

Blue Sky Suri alpaca has a pretty white white, imo.
