PIONEERS AND LEADERS IN THE
ALPACA INDUSTRY IN PERU
With more than 86 years experience and know-how in the processing of Alpaca fibre, Michell & Cia. is today a pioneer and the leading Alpaca tops and yarns producer and exporter in the world.
Frank W. Michell founded Michell & Cía. in 1931, dedicated to the purchase, classification and commercialisation of Alpaca and wool. Totally identified with Alpaca, his intention was to bring the qualities of this singular Andean product to the attention of the rest of the world.
TREASURE OF THE ANDES
Alpacas (lama pacos) are one of the most beautiful South American camelids. Related to the Llamas, Guanacos and Vicuñas, the Alpaca has been valued for its fibre since pre-Incan times due to the properties and quality of its hair. There are two main species of Alpaca: the Huacayo y Suri.
