Alpaca Fibre – Ethnic and Luxurious
Alpaca fibre is prized thanks to its natural properties. The combination of unique weather conditions and a low-protein diet allows Alpacas to grow fine hair that is comparable to other special, high-quality fibres such as Cashmere, Angora and Mohair. Alpaca is a silky, soft, durable fibre that has unique thermal properties due to the microscopic air pockets found in the fibre. These pockets allow the user to breathe through it on warm days, and likewise trap body heat in cold weather. It is also elastic and non-flammable.
Alpaca – Treasure of the Andes
Alpacas (lama pacos) are members of the South American camelid family which also includes Llamas, Guanacos and Vicuñas, to which they are closely related. Alpacas are indigenous to Peruvian highlands. There are an estimated 3.5 to 5 million Alpacas in South America, and about 95% of them are found in the Southern region of Peru. Alpacas are bred at altitudes ranging from 2,500 to over 4,500 metres above sea level, where they withstand temperatures that fluctuate between +30 Celsius to -20 Celsius in a single day and survive on a special low-protein diet based on natural grasses found on the moorelands. Alpacas are shorn every 18 months, from November to March, yielding about 2 to 3 kilograms of fibre per animal. There are two Alpaca types: Huacayo and Suri, which differ from each other in both their appearance and the characteristics of the fibre.
