Our Quality

Alpaca wool is, more than ever, 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 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.

Products in Alpaca

We trust entirely in the know-how of the Peruvians for the manufacture of our various products. All alpacas live in freedom in the Peruvian mountains in 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 the expertise of local weaving techniques. 

The virtues of Alpaca

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

Ecological virtues

  • Alpaca fibre 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 pads, which allow the preservation of the soil and its environment,
  • Alpaca fibre does not contain lanolin. It is a greasy substance and sometimes allergenic to different skin types.

Sustainable virtues

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