Collection of Alpaca Tops

Alpaca fibre is valued because of its natural properties. The combination of a unique and severe climate and a diet low in protein permit the Alpaca to grow fine hair which is comparable in quality to other special fibres such as cashmere, angora and mohair. 

A luxurious ethnic fibre

Alpaca Fibre

Alpaca is a soft, silky and durable fibre which has remarkable thermal properties due to microscopic air bubbles inside the hairs. These bubbles allow the user to breathe through the fibres on hot days and, in the same way, retain body heat when it’s cold. Alpaca hair comes in more than 15 natural shades, which makes it an interesting alternative for the principal designers around the world.

The versatility of Alpaca fibre means it can be transformed into knitted garments such as jumpers, cardigans, suits, coats, capes, gloves, hats, scarves, shawls, stoles and even carpets.
