Alpacas are fun and curious animals. They have been herded similar to sheep in Peru. We met up with some Quechewa herdsmen while traveling in Ecuador and learned of their ancient ways. These beautiful animals have been providing them wool for centuries. However, they do not have the technology to get their products on the worldwide market, which is where we come in. We work with these people as partners and friends. We believe that the product quality they offer cannot be matched by any other method.
Fleece of alpaca
The yarn of our alpaca accessories is made from the wool of these alpacas. It is one of the strongest natural fibers that is known to man. It is super soft and very warm as well as lightweight. You don't have to wear bulky to get the insulating factors you are looking for. As the insulating factors of alpaca wool is 3-5 times more than that of sheep wool. And, it is completely hypoallergenic and doesn't have that itchy feeling that you get with sheep wool. This is why it is the perfect solution for winter accessories. It has the feel and maybe even softer than cashmere, but is made in much more human ways. Check out our alpaca scarves and choose a color that best fits your outfit. We like the Alpaca Light Green Yellow Pattern Weave Scarf, what if your favorite?
Cared for alpacas
Our alpacas are in Peru, where alpacas are worshiped and considered sacred. This means that they are well cared for and they need to have their wool sheared to prevent skin issues later on. So, we are helping them, just as much as they are us. The alpaca farms that we use have all free-range alpacas, meaning they graze on grasses freely. They are super curious and adorable animals that are very smart. Most of the time alpacas are pretty docile, but if something irritates them they can be a bit of a challenge.
When you purchase your alpaca wool accessories to complete your look, you are helping families in Peru thrive in a life they have known for centuries. This amazing art dates back to AD times. Each alpaca is sheared by hand, one at a time, as if time stood still. They are lovely animals that bring us amazing fibers to offer you amazing alpaca accessories. These accessories are waterproof, soft, warm and durable. But, remember you need to care for the garments carefully in cool water with wool approved soap.
