take great pride in the fact that our
alpaca fleece is hand processed. From
shearing it is carefully hand washed
using no chemicals. From there it is
hand combed and hand carded to produce
the best possible spinable fibre.
is a wonderful fibre, unique in its own
right. Pure alpaca is 30% warmer than
wool and the some of the fibre is
similar to hair in appearance and
behaviour. Alpaca is also non allergenic.
For people with chemical allergies this
preparation method reduces the risk of
contamination that can occur in a mill.
Our goal is to
produce yarn and garments that can be worn time
after time. To this end, most of our alpaca
fleece is blended with the softest merino wool,
which adds the memory alpaca can lack, and
reduces the chance that the garment might be too
warm. The yarn is also tightly spun, to reduce
the chances of pilling.
wool garments need to be hand washed and dried
flat. However, since both wool and alpaca do not
retain dirt, it is not necessary to launder them
