Wash & care

  • Wash
    Hand washing on cold is best. If you use the machine, wash on delicate and cold
  • Dry
    Lay flat to dry
  • It's comfier and cozier than I ever could have thought, and I can wear it daily for weeks — even on sweaty hiking and biking activities — without washing it or being even a little stinky. This sweater is a warm snuggly hug and I keep ordering them for my friends and family members.

    - Julia B.

  • This sweater is phenomenal, it’s what I imagine cuddling with an alpaca feels like. I’m an extremely active person and the sweaters seamlessly function from hanging out on the couch to more active activities.

    - Guanyi

  • When I read the reviews of people saying, "it's equally good in warmer weather and cold weather", I didn't get it. Now that I'm wearing it. I get it.

Gear that keeps up with you
Extremely light

This hoodie weighs less than 10 oz. That's lighter than your coffee mug.


So you can hit the slopes, grab some dinner, wear it to bed, and repeat.

Softer than cashmere

Our blend uses Royal Alpaca (18-19 microns), meaning you can wear it without an undershirt.


The alpaca evolved in one of the most dynamic climates in the world, creating a naturally thermal comfort range of more than 50°F.
