  • This is as soft, light, and warm as they say - beyond my expectations! It's become my go-to for hiking, backpacking in cooler weather, and just snuggling on the couch when it's chilly inside.

The Inca Collection

Celebrating Peruvian heritage through traditional textile design.

Handknit, signed, and designed by our team of artisans in Cusco, Peru.

Our Inca Collection honors traditional Andean techniques passed down through generations. These methods are far more gentle and hands-on than the processes typical of modern clothing production. Our sweaters are still dried by the Andean sun and washed in basins. These practices are gentle on the environment, using minimal energy and resources. Each sweater in the Inca Collection is made by hand, embracing a thoughtful approach to the craftsmanship and symbolism behind each design.

What makes alpaca wool the fiber of gods

Highly durable with 50 N/ktex tensile strength
Micro air pockets makes it breathable and light (3x lighter than sheep)
The hollow fiber helps keep you warm when cold, and cool when hot.
