"Alpaca fiber - the fleece of the gods"

Alpacas are the smaller relatives of the llamas and are among the oldest livestock breeds in the world. In its country of origin Peru, the alpaca fiber industry is still of great economic importance. Approximately 2-3 million alpacas are kept in Peru today and produce approx. 4,000 - 8,000 t of alpaca fiber. There are also larger alpaca deposits in Bolivia and Chile. There are two types of alpacas, the Huacaya and the Suri. They differ in the structure of their fiber. The Huacaya alpaca has a fine, evenly crimped fiber (crimp) and some awn hair (top hair). The Suri Alpaka, on the other hand, has no curl in the fibers, the hair forms curly, straight strands that hang down on the animal. The play of colors ranges from deep black, brown or gray to pure white.

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 transferred 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.
