What is an Alpaca?
The alpaca came into being in the heart of the Andes and is one of the first and best loved inhabitants.
The alpaca, a witness to Andean history from times even before those of the Incas, has been appreciated for thousands of years and is today acknowledged worldwide for the beauty and perfection of its fibre, which is :
- Unbelievably soft and silky
- Extremely light in weight
- Very strong and durable
- 100% natural
- Sustainable, renewable and biodegradable
- Unique in regards to its thermal properties, permitting the circulation of air on warm days and retaining heat in cold conditions.
Additionally, alpaca hair is produced in 32 natural shades, providing a great alternative to the world’s principal designers.
