Welcome to the Andes Mountains

The alpaca has evolved in one of the most rugged, dynamic climates on planet earth.

It's a place that hits both extremities in a single day.

Because of this, alpaca fiber is uniquely functional.

Alpaca wool is:

Alpaca wool is:

odor-resistant

alpaca fiber's keratin protein has natural antibacterial properties. it's hard to make our clothing smell.

"challenge accepted"

3x lighter than sheep's wool

our sweaters weigh ≈ 10 oz. for reference, a can of soup weighs around 13 oz.

"so light you could fly... but please don't try"

durable

alpaca fiber's tensile strength is 50 N/ktex. historians write about the Incas making bridges out of alpaca wool.

"i double dog dare your dog to chew this up" 

(almost) as warm as polar bear fur

alpaca fiber is medullated with hollow air pockets that hold heat in.

"basically a portable alpaca hug"

moisture-wicking

alpaca's water retention rate is around 8%, compared to 16-20% of most other wool. while not waterproof, it's considered water-repellent.

"...CANNONBALL!!!"

soft as cashmere

alpaca is hypoallergenic, meaning it doesn't have that itchy grease (lanolin) in other wools. additionally, we use royal alpaca - the top 1% selection of fiber (18-19 microns).

"be in the good kind of the 1%"

moisture-wicking

alpaca has one of the highest wicking properties of all natural fibers (its water retention rate is around 8%, compared to 16-20% of most other wool).

3x lighter than sheep's wool.

Warm: The alpaca fiber is medullated with hollow air pockets that hold heat in. the only thing warmer than alpaca wool is polar bear fur.

Durable: Historians write about the Incas making bridges spanning canyons out of alpaca wool. The fiber's tensile strength is 50 N/ktex.

Moisture-wicking: The water retention rate for alpaca is 8%, while most other wools are 16-20%.

• Hypoallergenic: Unlike other wools, alpaca doesn't have lanolin - the grease that causes itching. Additionally, we use Royal Alpaca (18-19 microns), the finest possible selection of fiber.
