As said before, alpacas live in the mountains of South America. They are present in several countries but 80% of the world production of alpaca is made in Peru. Living at more than 4000 meters of altitude, alpacas are sometimes confronted with extreme temperature changes. These changes push them to develop a thermoregulating natural fiber fleece, so that they can adapt to all temperatures. This is an incredible virtue that alpaca fiber possesses, it allows the wearer to maintain an ideal body temperature. This avoids the problems of sweating and many others.

The Peruvians take care of the alpaca farms and know better than anyone how this wool is harvested and how it is used to make clothes.

The wool family contains many kinds of wool. Whether it is sheep's wool, merino wool or lamb's wool, they are all appreciated for their most famous property: insulation. Indeed, wools are well known as warm textiles. We all check the label when buying a sweater for winter, to see if it contains wool. However, some wools like sheep's wool are not comfortable. That is to say, it tends to scratch a lot, which makes wearing a wool sweater quite unpleasant.

For all these reasons, softer materials like cashmere and angora are favored by many people. However, these are rare materials and their production unfortunately causes animal abuse. Indeed, the production is accelerated to answer the strong demand and the animals are brought to be sheared in winter or to undergo cruel techniques of harvest of their wool. However, the price of these textiles remains very high.

It is possible to find a wool that has all the advantages and is free of all the disadvantages of other wools. This is alpaca wool. An alpaca sweater is seven times warmer than a sheep's wool sweater and also four times more resistant. It is thermoregulating, antibacterial and hypoallergenic.

Alpaca wool is ecologically responsible and sustainable because alpaca is an animal that eats little and emits much less greenhouse gases than other animals. Moreover, this wool is very little damaged with time and washings. Also, it is the only wool that does not pilling. An alpaca sweater can be worn for decades.
