Alpaca Fiber

It's impossible to talk about our brand without talking about Peru and the alpaca. This animal that we naturally fell in love with.

Alpaca wool is sustainable, ethical, cruelty-free, renewable and biodegradable. It’s hypoallergenic and doesn’t feel itchy on the skin because it contains no lanolin or rough fibers. It’s lighter and seven times warmer than sheep’s wool, keeping you warm and cozy in the cold while remaining light and breathable for warmer weather. It’s also more durable and less likely to pill than other fibers

Our garments are carefully crafted from Baby Alpaca wool - one of the finest animal fibers in the world, often called the “Fiber of the Gods”. This fabric was valued more than gold by Incan emperors. We almost entirely use the fiber called Baby Alpaca, known for its fineness and softness. The term “baby” has nothing to do with the age of the animal but refers to the grade of alpaca wool between 19 and 21 microns.

The Alpaca is part of the South American camelid family just like the llama, guanaco and vicuña. This emblematic animal of the Andes, lives in the Andean highlands at an altitude of more than 3800 meters. They live freely in their natural habitat and their breeding is ecologically responsible. Alpacas feed by nibbling on the tops of grasses and plants, they do not rip plants out of the soil. This results in less disturbance of the vegetation and therefore the regrowth is much faster. In contrast to goats and sheep, unlike goats and sheep, alpacas have soft pads instead of hooves. This prevents soil damage.

Alpaca wool does not pill (fuzzy balls on the surface of wool clothing) like other materials because the fibers are longer, it is therefore durable and resistant. It is soft and delicate to the touch, and does not retain odors or dust. Clothes made from alpaca wool have a natural sheen that gives them a beautiful visual appearance. 

Alpaca is not only for winter! Wear it in spring and autumn too. 

Alpaca fiber contains microscopic air pockets that allows the creation of lightweight garments with outstanding thermal properties adapting quickly to your body temperature. The structure of alpaca wool acts as an insulator, which allows us to use it in different weather conditions throughout the seasons, giving you the optimal comfort.
