There are examples of the Incas' relationship with alpacas in early Peruvian history. The Incas valued alpaca fibre more than gold or silver. The skill and knowledge of spinning and knitting have been passed down from generation to generation, resulting in Peru's rich and diverse textile heritage. New patterns are combined with traditional methods to provide an innovative touch while maintaining the ethical heritage.
The alpacas live mostly without boundaries in the Peruvian Andes highlands and are not harmed during the shearing process. Their soft padded feet are gentle on the grass terrain, and they graze without damaging the area's root system. Alpaca is the only animal that can produce up to 28 natural colours, which can be blended to create an infinite number of natural shades ranging from inky black to warm chestnuts and snowy white. It can be dyed in any colour and retains its natural lustre.
Alpaca is supple and smooth to the touch, and it is ultra-light due to its featherweight. Alpaca is softer than cashmere, warmer, and more durable than lamb's wool. It has microscopic air pockets, resulting in lightweight clothing with excellent insulating properties. It is a completely natural fibre that is produced without the use of harsh chemicals.
