Care

Alpaca is an extremely breathable natural fiber. You don't need to wash it often! We recommend washing it by hand or on a cold wash. We advise using soft washing liquid or special wool products.

Alpacas

The Alpaca lives in the Highlands of the Andes at around 4 000 meters high where strong winds blow and temperatures go below -20° Celsius ! Its secret to resist is its warm and soft wool ! The breeding of Alpaca is very extensive : it can be seen wandering around in the big spaces of the Andes. The patterns are actually inspired from their surrounding landscapes !

Baby Alpaca wool

The first shearing of the life of the Alpaca offer its best wool called Baby Alpaca. It is 10% thinner than regular Alpaca : about 22 microns versus 25.

Social project

We have a collaboration with the NGO Warita, they support various projects related to education in the suburb of La Paz. They build biological greenhouses in schools to raise the children's awareness to organic farming and diversify their diet, they create theater groups and purchase school supplies. For every sweater we sell we donate one euro to the NGO, this represents 15% of our benefits.
