Can anybody tell me the difference between merino wool, cashmere and alpaca in terms of price, softness, durability and warmth? I was at banana republic looking for a womens cashmere sweater (for gift) and I saw this sweater that's made of alpaca, which I've never heard of before. Just by feeling it feels very soft. It's cheaper than cashmere but I don't really know what the difference is between the two.
