Alpaca fibre is silky and soft. Its thickness ranges from 18 to 22 microns (cashmere is 19 microns) yet remains light and breathable.
DURABLE Alpaca fibre is stronger than sheep's wool and more resistant to water, which makes it last wash after wash.
HYPOALLERGENIC Unlike sheep's wool, the alpaca fibre does not contain lanolin, which makes it hypoallergenic and suitable for sensitive skin.
LIGHT & WARM Alpaca fibre is seven times warmer than sheep's wool and contains microscopic air pockets, which makes very light weight but breathable garments.
SUSTAINABLE Alpacas are free grazing animals bred naturally in the highlands of Peru without pesticides. They are not fed with hormones and do not receive chemicals.
ECONOMIC The number of fibres needed to make an alpaca item of clothing are considerably reduced when compared with wool from other animals. It takes just one alpaca to make up to five jumpers!
COLOUR The alpaca fibre has a natural colour spectrum which ranges from pure white to intense black and includes over thirty shades.
Given the delicate nature of this baby alpaca product we recommend a hand wash or dry clean only.
