ALPACA: Alpacas are one of the most beautiful South American Camelids. Alpacas have been prized for their fiber since Pre-Incan times due to the properties and quality of their hair.
With a population of 3,5 million in Perú, representing 85% of the world's total, the alpaca provides the main means of sustenance for thousands of families in the high Andes.
Up at elevations of more than 4000m above sea level among impressive landscapes where daily temperature ranges can be as much as 30 Celsius degrees, thousands of rural families raise flocks of alpacas, as has been done for thousands of years, shearing the animals and selling their fiber every year, to provide those families with their principal income.

Alpaca is a silky, soft, durable fibre that has unique thermal properties due to the microscopic air pockets found within it. These pockets allow the user to breathe through the fibres on warm days, and likewise trap body heat in cold weather. It is also elastic and non-flammable.
PIMA COTTON: Peruvian Pima cotton became the best cotton in the world thanks to the excellent natural conditions of the fields in the north of Peru where it is handpicked to prevent damage to the fiber.
This cotton has extraordinary length, fineness and softness that enables the production of a uniform and resistant yarn for the manufacture of fabrics demanded by the most discerning markets. Peruvian Cotton, the world´s best !
