About our natural fibers

 

BABY ALPACA

alpaca - stone

One of the most exquisite and unknown fibers in the world.

Strong, soft, light and resistant to pilling.

Alpaca is Eco-Friendly. 

The alpaca is a South-American camelid that lives at an altitude of more than 4,000 meters above sea level. Alpacas are considered some of the “greenest” animals around. Their adaptations for living in harsh environments like the Andes give them a light eco-footprint: soft pads in place of hooves leave terrain undamaged, and their efficient eating habits result in greatly reduced water and acreage needs relative to other grazing animals.

Alpaca is also sustainable because an alpaca can produce fleece throughout its life without being harmed. When late spring arrives in the Andes (late fall here in the Northern Hemisphere) and the weather warms up, alpaca ranchers shear their animals for their annual “clip.” While alpacas don’t usually enjoy the shearing process itself, they are noticeably more comfortable after their annual “haircut.”

Because alpaca is naturally free of lanolin and other oils found in sheep’s wool, no harsh chemicals are needed to process alpaca fiber, making alpaca ranching 100% natural and safe for the environment.

Why we call it "Baby" Alpaca:

The baby alpaca fiber is only obtained when the alpaca is sheared for the first time, when it is three years old, and the animal is never harmed, thus ensuring the ethical treatment of animals. Its soft touch and natural movement are the result of a delicate combing process of the fiber before it is woven.
