The Alpaca is a South American Camelid and is indigenous to the Peruvian highlands. The Alpaca produces a natural fibre often referred to as the ‘fibre of the gods’ by the Inca. Their fine and sumptuous hair is shorn annually to be made into delicate garments. There are an estimated 4 million Alpacas in South America. Approximately 95% live in central and southern regions of Peru. BABY ALPACA has been hand-classified to a fineness of no more than 23 microns. This is a superior quality fibre which is soft, smooth and shiny. No other fibre keeps your body cool and warm at the same time. Alpaca has microscopic air pockets that keep you warm during the winter and allow you to stay cool in the summer.
