A garment made out of 100% Alpaca is a natural product. Its low level of lanolin in the fiber prevents itchiness and is recommended for allergic persons.

The Alpaca fiber has special thermal properties. Alpaca is a thermal insulator and absorbs ambient humidity, thus affording greater protection and comfort in a variety of climates.
Alpaca sweaters are therefore practical for summer and winter.

The worldwide production of Alpaca wool is significantly lower than that of Cashmere. These factors are making Alpaca so exclusive.

A unique fiber, a unique product.
