Black & white, honeycomb-structure, boxy shape: Such a fashionable alpaca jacket is hard to find.
Made in Peru by the specialist Raffa using hand-driven weaving machines.
Whilst most alpaca jackets seem dull, this fashionable example is particularly interesting: The carefully hand-woven 3D honeycomb texture highlights the contrasting black and white to perfection. A trendy garment with a square, narrow fit and double shawl collar.
Alpaca wool – a good partner all year round.
On the plateaus of the Andes, at an altitude of 5,000m, the alpacas have to brave extreme weather conditions, from sub-zero temperatures to blazing heat. Their unique furry coat makes it possible: When cold, the hollow fibres insulate and store the heat better than other fibres; when hot the fibres deflect the heat and ensure temperature regulation. This makes alpaca knitwear comfortable throughout the seasons.
Your new favourite jacket in highly stretchy and surprisingly durable yarn.
Thanks to the wool’s natural resilience, the jacket does not wear out. Moreover, alpaca wool is resistant to stains, abrasion as well as pilling, and neutralises odours.
