The Story Behind It

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.

Get a life. The other two reviewers seem pathetic, how does this complete your life? Unless you another mini animal collection, then that would make since. On the other hand, I am so much cooler and much much much more awesome than all of you. I love alpaca, he gets along get with my gnomes. (I think he may be having an affair with my main gnome, Sally.) Sally is blonde with a nice rack and great smile as well. The only thing I do not like about this alpaca product is that he is not actually alive. I plan to make my next purchase a REAL LIFE alpaca. June 6, 2012
Awesome Alpaca! I aslo thought this was a great purchase and I also found it to be very usefull in the bedroom. I have three that I bought a world market. It's handy in my purse and I bring them to work and have them on my computer at work. They look at me while I am working and make me happy. Everyone is jelaous and try to take them from me. But they better watch it... Lavoris is my main one. He brings me the most joy I would recommend this to others. May 31, 2012
