Peruvian alpaca blanket

The alpaca has always come from South America and more precisely from the Andes. It is a long chain of mountains in which there are high plateaus. The alpacas live on these plateaus where the temperature is extremely variable. It can go from -25 to 30 degrees in a single day.

To survive such climatic changes, the alpacas have developed a fiber with thermoregulatory properties. This virtue allows the alpacas to maintain their body at an ambient temperature. Thanks to this, we can also benefit from this magnificent property by wrapping ourselves in an alpaca blanket for example.

The people who live near the alpacas have learned to harvest their wool to make clothes. Over the years, they have developed a real technique and know-how. Indeed, alpaca wool is very difficult to work with, it requires a real knowledge of the fiber as well as a traditional know-how in order to make quality clothes.
