Alpaca - Gold of the Incas.
The Alpacas graze on the high plateaux of the South American Andes, at a height of 4,000 to 5,000 m. Protected by their extremely resistant wool they are unaffected by extremes of temperature, hot or cold. This precious wool is rare, because alpacas can be shorn only every two years. Each animal gives off about 3.5 kg (7.7 lbs) of wool.
Baby alpaca is the first shearing of an alpaca, making it even softer and rarer. The alpacas – the treasure of the Incas – are so carefully and lovingly shorn that they never have to suffer or feel the cold.
The fine alpaca hairs are covered in tiny scales which are particularly smooth. These reflect the light, giving the alpaca wool its typically delicate sheen. The extreme smoothness also prevents the fine, long fibres from entangling. This means that baby alpaca wool hardly pills at all, and it is also extremely durable, robust and hardwearing. A long-lasting luxury.
