The material of your scarves
As you have understood, arming yourself with a scarf for winter is more than necessary to spend good moments far from the unpleasant sensation of cold. But then how to choose the ideal scarf for your outings? First of all, you have to combine several important factors: the choice of the color, the size, the patterns and above all: the material. Find a material that keeps you warm, that doesn't itch, that doesn't give you any allergies, that isn't too heavy to wear and that preferably doesn't pilling. There are cashmere, wool, cotton, or silk scarves. But not all of these materials are ideal to protect yourself from the cold. Each material does not have the same use depending on the season. Cashmere is a luxury material par excellence, it is rare and therefore expensive but 5 times more insulating than sheep wool. Cotton is a natural and more accessible material. It is the ideal material for summer scarves because it has the power to absorb up to 8.5% of its weight in water. Finally, silk is increasingly known for its scarves and scarves that protect the neck well. It is a natural and luxurious fiber. It is very light and offers a touch of a rare softness, it is the ideal material for mid-season scarves! The only material that combines all the qualities mentioned above (a material that is warm, not itchy, does not give you any allergies, is not too heavy to wear and does not pilling) is alpaca wool. Your alpaca scarf will become your best friend. This material is the ideal material to protect yourself from the cold without putting on 4 layers of clothing. Of all the materials stated it is the best to spend the winter and to be warm in a good comfort.
Alpaca wool properties
As its name indicates, alpaca wool comes from the alpaca animal. Originally from South America and the Andes mountains, it is particularly present in Peru. It is a sociable, curious and intelligent animal that has always lived in herds. It is sheared only once a year (around October/November) and each alpaca allows to collect about 3 kg of wool each. Its wool is very appreciated and sought after because it has exceptional properties. First of all, its wool is 7 times warmer, softer and more resistant than sheep's wool but much rarer. Its wool was even used in the suits of NASA astronauts for their missions in space. Secondly, alpaca wool is a natural wool. There are 22 different colors (from white to black) of alpaca wool, so there is no need to bleach and recolor it. For other garments that would be colored, they are made from white alpaca wool then colored. The alpaca is also an animal that feeds on its environment without destroying it, so it has, as well as its wool, 0 negative impact on the planet. It is also a renewable wool because the wool grows about 1cm every month. In Peru, the alpaca is an extremely respected animal, and one could even say idolized by the population which has had strong ties with this camelid for centuries.
