an ode to alpaca
fiber of the Gods
Alpacas are native to Pre-Columbian South America and have been domesticated for about 5000 years. They naturally live high in the mountains. Due to their natural habitat, they have a versatile wool coat. Treasured by the ancient Inca civilisation, their fine fleeces were reserved for Incan royalty and and also known as 'The fiber of the Gods'.
Alpaca is a true miracle fibre. Super soft, warm and one of the most beautiful natural fibers in the world. The fleece from Alpaca is perfectly suited to survive in the harsh high altitude conditions. We used the beautiful Alpaca wool, and blended it with GOTS certified organic wool for a unique look and feel.
