Alpaca


The alpaca is a Peruvian camelid that lives in the highlands at more than 4000 meters above sea level. The alpaca is a sheared fiber and the animal is never harmed, thus, ensuring the ethical treatment of animals.
Huacaya is the most popular variety of alpaca, and represents 90% of the alpaca population. It has a wavy and lofty fleece with 22 different shades. In terms of classification we work primarily with baby alpaca that has 22.5 microns.
Baby alpaca fiber is luxuriously soft and stunningly beautiful. The fiber provides thermal insulation and moisture absorption yet is strong and somewhat elastic. Baby alpaca is non-flammable and not subject to felting—an ideal choice for home accessory and apparel items!
