  • Warmth: Alpaca wool definitely deserves this accolade. Simply put, it is the most comfortable, all-weather fiber. Micron-sized air pockets in alpaca fibers provide excellent insulation and keep you warm in the winter. You'll stay cool in the summer thanks to the excellent breathability provided by these same air pockets. A light sweater made of Alpaca wool of high quality can keep you warmer than most heavy jackets and be more comfortable than many cotton sweatshirts.


  • Weight: Alpaca wool versatility is partly due to its weight—or lack thereof. Alpaca fabric is almost as light as air thanks to those very small air pockets that aid in reducing the fibers' weight. Because of its light weight, the fiber is equally suitable for the shawl you wear to your favorite award ceremony at the end of the year, the cardigan you wear to your annual work holiday party, or the sweater you wear to cross-country ski in February.


  • Strength: Alpaca wool has fine, light, and silky fibers. However, this luxury fiber is extremely durable and strong. Contrary to their adorable appearance, alpacas are tough and able to withstand the harsh winters of the Andes. It's no wonder that Alpaca fiber lasts longer than most luxury fibers, including cashmere, silk, and other wools. High-quality Alpaca clothing can be passed down through the generations with proper care.


  • Texture: Alpaca has a unique feel, especially Royal or Baby Alpaca. The terms "soft," "luxurious," "soothing," and "comforting" all apply. It is pure magic to feel a high-quality Alpaca garment draped around you. You are aware that you are sporting one of the finest fibers. Warm, light, and robust, with a unique luxury feel: True masterpieces of nature can be found in the fibers of alpacas. It kind of makes sense if you stop and think about it for a minute. Over thousands of years, alpacas have evolved to live in the high Andes. Winters can be harsh and cold, summer sun can burn right through you, and you want to carry as little extra weight as possible at such a high altitude. We are fortunate to be able to share the Alpaca fiber with you because it is simply a byproduct of its environment.
