The Luxurious Warmth of Alpaca Wool
Used in South America for thousands of years, alpaca wool played an important role in ancient Andean life, providing warmth that was crucial to survival. Alpaca continue to be raised in semiarid regions in western Bolivia and southern Peru at elevations up to 15,000 feet. Their ability to withstand such elevation comes from the strength of their natural coat to protect against extreme changes of temperature, which is passed onto products like clothing and bedding made from alpaca wool.
While similar to sheep's wool, alpaca wool is actually softer thanks to the small diameter of its fibers. Alpaca wool is also warmer than sheep's wool, which makes it a great choice for winter apparel. We chose durable alpaca wool for our luxurious ponchos, shawls, scarves and throw blankets for its luxurious feel and effective heat retention so you're sure to sure to stay warm during the cold season.
