In the earliest Peruvian history, you will find examples of the bond between the Incas and alpaca.
The Incas placed a higher value on alpaca fibre than gold or silver.
The knowledge and craftsmanship of spinning and knitting have been passed down from generation to generation, resulting in the rich, diverse textile heritage of Peru.
New patterns are combined with traditional methods, giving an innovative touch without losing the ethical heritage.
The alpaca lives mostly without any boundaries in the highlands of the Peruvian Andes and are not harmed during the shearing process.
Their soft padded feet are gentle on the grass terrain and they graze without destroying the root system of the area.
Alpaca is the only animal that produces up to 28 natural colours and can be blended into an infinite array of natural shades from inky black to warm chestnuts and snowy white.
It is easily dyed in any colour and always retains its natural lustre.
Alpaca is supple and smooth to the touch and because of the featherweight, it’s ultra-light.
Alpaca is softer than cashmere and warmer and stronger than lamb’s wool.
It contains microscopic air pockets which create lightweight clothing with excellent insulating properties.
It is a completely natural fibre and there is no use of harsh chemicals in production.
