Alpaca is an aristocrat of the luxury fiber world.
Alpaca sweaters are not only lighter than wool sweaters but are much warmer. The alpaca fiber has no lanolin or oils in it so it won’t attract dirt as badly as wool and stays looking beautiful longer. Alpacas low shrinkage rate means it cleans up better than wool also.
Alpaca incorporates the finest features of the world’s natural fibers. Alpacas are native to the Andes Mountains in Peru, where 80% of the total population of Alpacas in the world still live. They are found at high altitudes of about 12,000 to 15,000 feet in the Peruvian Mountains. The finest of alpaca hair, and its hollow, insulating core give alpaca fiber a smooth, velvety hand and cloud-weight softness.
