There are signs in early Peruvian history of the Incas' affection for alpacas. During the Inca empire, alpaca was used only by royalty due to its high value as the finest material. Alpaca fibre is a very soft and silky material to the touch. It is softer than cashmere and has a higher insulation and durability rating than lamb's wool. It has microscopic air pockets, which contribute to the fabric's lightweight nature and great insulating capabilities. It is an entirely natural fibre that is manufactured without the use of harsh chemicals.
Alpacas are allowed to roam freely in the Peruvian Andes and are not harmed during the shearing procedure. Their cushioned feet are gentle on grassy ground, and they graze without damaging the root system of the area. Alpaca is the only animal that produces up to 28 natural colours, which may be blended to create an infinite variety of natural shades ranging from inky black to warm chestnut and immaculate white. It may be coloured virtually any colour and retains its intrinsic brilliance throughout.
