Alpaca is a soft, silky and durable fibre which has remarkable thermal properties. Microscopic bubbles within the hairs allow the user to breathe through the fibres on hot days and, in the same way, retain body heat when it’s cold.
A special characteristic of Alpaca fibre is its wide range of natural colours and a multitude of shades which can be obtained through careful blending.
This puts Alpaca fibre in a class of its own.
For orange, blue and red coloured garments, natural dyes have been used to enhance the colour effect.
