The cashmere of alpacas! Superfine, incredibly soft and wearable, our alpacas are grown at elevations of over 10,000 feet in the Andes mountains. Raised at high altitudes in freezing cold, these alpacas have softer hair with more thermal capacity than their lowland cousins. Peruvian Tweed colors are made with three strands of undyed, natural alpaca twisted together to create a yarn that is lofty, plush, and deliciously textured.
Naturally hypoallergenic, free of lanolin or dander, and water and fire resistant, these fibers are a pleasure to wear against the skin.
