The Incas had a special relationship with alpacas that can be traced all the way back to ancient times in Peru. Alpaca fibre was more valuable to the Incas than either gold or silver. Peru's rich textile heritage is the result of the country's people passing down their knowledge and skills in spinning and knitting from one generation to the next. Traditional methods and new patterns are combined to create something new without losing sight of the company's ethical roots.
Alpacas in the Peruvian Andes highlands are not harmed during the shearing process because they are mostly free of boundaries. Grazing with their soft padded feet is gentle on the grassy terrain, and it does not harm the area's root system. There are no other animals that can produce as many natural colours as alpacas can, and this includes inky black, warm chestnut, and white as well as fluffy clouds in the sky. It can be dyed any colour you want, and the natural lustre will never fade.
It's a featherweight material that's soft to the touch and supple to the touch. Compared to lamb's wool, alpaca's fibre is softer, warmer, and more durable. Because of the microscopic air pockets, it contains, it is possible to create clothing that is both lightweight and extremely warm. It's made entirely of natural fibres without the use of any harsh chemicals.
