Alpaca wool is recognized as one of the most luxurious wools in the world. Due to its softness, purity, and versatility, it is used in a variety of high fashion garments.
Alpaca wool contains air pads that provide insulation and maintain warmth during winter. These microscopic pads allow for incredible breathability that also keeps you cool in the summer. Remarkably light, our alpaca garments keep you fresh in summer and warm in winter, avoiding significant use of other materials.
Alpaca is one of the finest, lightest, and silkiest fibers thanks to its high strength and durability. This wool allows these animals to survive severe frosts in the mountains and hot days in the summer. It is considered stronger and more durable than any other wool, cashmere, or silk. Our garments will pass from generation to generation intact if you follow the care instructions on our labels.
