Special features of alpaca wool:
Alpaca wool is very popular in the textile industry worldwide, as it is one of the finest natural fibers in the world alongside cashmere and silk. A silky shiny, extraordinarily fine, but still very resistant, elastic hair fleece makes alpaca wool a noble and yet very weatherproof material.
Unlike sheep's wool or cashmere, the alpaca hair is hollow on the inside. This gives the material unique thermal properties. In the cold, the warmed air is stored and in summer the warm air is transported outside. These outstanding properties make alpaca the ideal wool fiber for the whole year - summer and winter.
The alpaca fiber creates a very comfortable fit because it is much lighter than sheep or cotton. Garments made from this fiber have an incomparable style of elegance and unique color intensity.
Here is an overview of the properties of alpaca fiber
- moisture control
- not scratchy
- protects against UV radiation
- 22 natural shades
- softer, shinier and more supple than sheep's wool
- very strong and resistant fibers
Care instructions: hand wash!
Please only lukewarm wash by hand and do not spin! We recommend washing the alpaca wool products with a mild wool detergent. After rinsing, squeeze out gently and place on a towel in the form and let it dry. This product was not manufactured in industrial mass production and is somewhat more sensitive than normal textiles.
