Our Quality

More than ever, Alpaca wool is a product with ecological stakes. It is a sustainable and responsible product that is little known to the general public.

Alpaca wool

The alpaca, of the camelid family, lives mainly on the South American continent. The majority of the alpaca population lives freely in the Andes Cordillera, up to 4,880 metres above sea level.

This is why their bodies have had to adapt to extreme changes in temperature. In addition, this animal is sheared only once a year during hot periods. Unlike many wools, alpaca shearing produces up to 3 kg of wool, compared to an average of 150 g for sheep. This allows us to make more products for your comfort and well-being, while respecting our favorite animal, our beautiful alpaca.

Alpaca Products

We trust entirely in the expertise of the Peruvian manufactures for our various products. All alpacas live in freedom in the Peruvian mountains, their natural habitat. Their shearing is done with respect for the animal and at the most favourable time for its well-being. All our items are produced on site in order to have access to local skills and weaving techniques. 

The Virtues of Alpaca

Alpaca fiber has been able to respond to both ecological and sustainable issues. 

Ecological Virtues

  • Alpaca fiber requires no chemical treatment, bleaching or dyeing,
  • Alpacas do not pull the root out of the grass when they graze, they simply cut it off,
  • The alpaca has small foot pads, which allow the preservation of the soil and its environment,
  • Alpaca fiber does not contain lanolin which is a greasy substance and sometimes allergenic to different skin types.

Sustainable Virtues

  • Alpaca fiber is 4 times more resistant than sheep wool and has a longer life span than clothing,
  • Alpaca fiber has developed a thermal insulating capacity 7 times greater than sheep wool and emits no odour when wet,
  • Alpaca fiber is the only wool that does not pill despite consistent washing.
