30 cm x 200 cm
Domesticated thousands of years ago by the predecessors
of the Incas, the qualities we revere in the alpaca’s wool are
forged by the extraordinarily tough climate at 3500-5000 meters
of altitude in the Andes mountains, where daily temperatures
fluctuate up to 40 degrees - from -20C to + 20C. This
unique environment produces wool that is extremely heat-efficient
and pleasant to the touch.
Luxurious, durable and extremely rare, the wool and fur of the
Andean alpaca are unrivaled by any other natural fiber. Thanks
to its semi-hollow structure and short surface scales, alpaca
fiber is extremely smooth and silky to touch and traps warmth
very efficiently while being lightweight and dirt resistant.
Alpaca fiber is uniquely smooth and glossy, creating opulent,
silky products that beg to be touched, stroked and lived in.
