Materials

Our yarn is made primarily from alpaca, sourced from small communities of farmers in the highlands of Peru. Alpacas normally roam free, except  yearly shearing, and have a low impact on their habitat.
They graze on the tops of natural grasses, without pulling out the root.

Alpaca fiber is super silky and soft, resistant, warm, and has little to no pilling. The yarn is also hypoallergenic because it doesn’t contain lanolin, present in wool.

Sustainable Fiber

Alpaca fiber naturally biodegrades in a shorter period of time compared to other synthetic fibers, hence all our garments are eco- sustainable. 

Care Instructions 

  • Fill a clean sink or tub with cold water and a small amount of mild liquid detergent like baby shampoo or a fine fibers formula. Using hot water, or even two different temperatures of water, will “shock” the fibers, making them mat together and start turning into felt.)
  •  Soak the garment for 3 to 5 minutes, gently squeezing the suds through the garment. Avoid twisting, wringing, scrubbing, or otherwise agitating it, as this will cause felting.
    Dyed garments will have some chance of bleed, but since alpaca fiber takes dyeing better than most other fibers, this shouldn’t be a problem after the first wash.
  • Rinse the garment twice in clean, cold water and gently squeeze out the excess.
  • Lay the garment between two towels, roll up the towels and set it aside for a few minutes.
