Alpaca. The gold of the Incas.
The alpacas graze on the high plateaux of the South American Andes, at an altitude of between 4,000 and 5,000 metres, immune to icy cold temperatures and blazing heat, protected only by their extremely hardy fleece. They are shorn every 2 years, each animal yielding a fleece weighing approx. 3.5 kilograms. Only a single shipment of alpaca wool is available world-wide each year – hence its high price. With its silky sheen, pleasant feel, lightness and warmth, alpaca wool knitwear is fantastically comfortable. The fine alpaca hairs are enveloped by tiny, extremely smooth scales which reflect the light and give alpaca wool its characteristic classic sheen. Their extremely smooth surface also prevents the long, fine fibres from catching, which means that alpaca wool will not pill and is durable and hardwearing. A long-lasting luxury.
