We also offer an attractive array of accessory essentials such as hats, mittens, scarves, socks and children’s items as well as durable, fashionable line of yarns and crafting fiber provided by our own happy herd of superior grade Alpaca. Put simply, Alpaca fleece is recognized as one of the most luxurious fabrics in the world. It’s used in the most elite global fashion houses because of its softness, luster and versatility. Here’s why:
Alpaca is the warmest all-weather friendly fiber. Alpaca fibers contain microscopic air pockets, providing great insulation and keeping you warm during the winter. These same air pockets allow for outstanding breathability, thus keeping you cool in the summer. A high-quality light sweater made from Alpaca products can keep you warmer than most heavy jackets and more comfortable than any wool or acrylic product. Even your favorite well-worn cotton sweatshirt.
One reason Alpaca is so versatile is because it so light in weight. Those same microscopic air pockets that create incredible thermal qualities help to reduce the weight of Alpaca fibers, making Alpaca fabric incredibly light and easy to wear. This minimal weight makes the fiber equally ideal for the shawl you wear to your next fashion function, the cardigan that’s perfect for daily wear, or the sweater you wear while cross-country skiing in February.
Alpaca wool fibers are fine, lightweight and silky. Yet this luxury fiber has great strength and durability. Don’t let the cute Alpaca face fool you, these animals are tough and strong, surviving long, cold Andean winters. It’s no wonder Alpaca fiber lasts longer than most any other luxury fiber, including other wools, cashmere and silk. With proper care, high quality Alpaca apparel can be an heirloom passed down through generations.
All Alpaca fiber, especially Suri or Baby Alpaca, has a special feel to it. It’s soft, luxurious, soothing and comforting. Beyond any knit product in the world, Alpaca is designed to wear right against your skin. Unlike even the finest grade wool, that has tiny barbs that cause scratchiness and greasy lanolin, the feeling of a quality Alpaca garment draped around you is organic and luxurious. You’ll know you’re wearing one of the world’s finest luxury fibers.
