THE FINEST PERUVIAN

ALPACA

ALPACA FIBRE

 

THE FINEST PERUVIAN ALPACA

 

Alpaca is a soft, silky and durable fibre with unique thermal properties due to microscopic air bubbles found inside the hair. These bubbles allow the user to “breathe” through the fibres on hot days and in much the same way, to retain body heat in cold climates. It is also elastic and not inflammable.

SHEARING AND SELECTION

 

RURAL COMMUNITIES

 

Our experience, combined with the knowledge of the inhabitants of the sierra has allowed us to obtain, by ancestral means, the finest Alpaca fibre, and guided by ancient customs, we carefully shear the Alpaca just once a year.

MAIN QUALITIES

Alpaca fibre is produced in around de 15 natural shades, which makes it an attractive option for designers around the world. The versatility of Alpaca fibre allows it to be readily transformed into all kinds of knitted garments, accessories or handcrafted products, either by machine or by hand.
