What this person does
The Inca-alpaca bond can be found in Peruvian history even before the Incas took control. Alpaca fibre was valued more highly than gold or silver in the Inca Empire. The knowledge and skill of spinning and knitting, which have been passed down through the generations in Peruvian society, are the foundation of the country's textile heritage. Incorporating both new and traditional techniques yields a fresh look while still honouring the past.
Alpacas in Peru's Andes mountains have few problems during shearing because they don't have any territorial boundaries. In this way, the root system is not trampled and can grow normally. Until now, alpacas are the only animals that can naturally produce a whopping 28 shades of colour. This means they can be used to create an infinite number of different natural hues, from deep black to rich chestnut, and even ice-blue. It can be dyed in a variety of colours and will always be shiny.
Because of the down feathers in the alpaca, it is soft and flexible to the touch while also being lightweight. Unlike cashmere, alpaca fibre is softer and more durable than lamb's wool. The clothing's insulating capabilities are improved thanks to the inclusion of tiny air pockets. The fibre is made entirely of natural materials, with no harmful chemicals used in the manufacturing process.
