Alpaca a noble fibre from a sweet animal.

 

 

In its natural habitat, the Andes, the Alpaca lives at 4500 metres above sea level,but they can also be found in other countries, Australia, Canada, The United States…..The wool is shaggier than Mohair but not as “hairy . It’s a very high quality natural fibre,  its main characteristics being, softness, lightness, resistance and undeniable thermal qualities. An Alpaca can produce up to 2,5kg of wool a year. Its fleece is “dry” and therefore looses little weight when washed.

The colours are all natural: Black, Dark Brown, Beige, Grey and Natural.
