Alpaca wool is a natural material that possesses superior properties to the vast majority of fibres that can be found today.
The history of Alpaca wool began thousands of years ago when the ancient tribes of the Andes noticed its incredible thermal qualities. Since then, this fibre has been essential for the confection of clothes. More than 500 years ago, during the Inca empire, alpaca wool was already recognized as a luxury for its multiple qualities. It was called the "fleece of the gods" and perceived as a sign of prestige among the empire nobles.
Today it is still recognized as one of the most luxurious and refine fibres in the world. It is one of the few noble threads, competing almost exclusively with wool such as cashmere, mohair or vicuna.
Nowadays, it is not only superior for ethical reasons due to its high sustainability. But, it also has characteristics that make it stand out from its competition. Alpaca wool is thinner, maintains its shine even after being washed or dyed, and is more resistant, so it gives us a more durable product.
