Alpacas (lama pacos) are one of the most beautiful South American Camelids. Related to the Llama, Guanacos and Vicuña, Alpacas have been prized for their fibre since Pre-Incan times due to the properties and quality of thier wool (hair)
Alpaca is a silky, soft, durable fibre that has unique thermal properties due to the microscopic air pockets found in the fibre. These pockets allow the user to breath through it on warm days, and likewise trap body heat in cold weather. It is also elastic and non-flammable.
Our products are made of Alpaca and Silk yarn - a beautiful 30/70 blend of alpaca and silk. This allowed our designs to reach the standard of quality you are looking for.
A delightful, shimmery, lightweight yarn that shows the best of both fibers. The soft, pure alpaca yarn, for lightness and warmth, the silk for sparkle.
