KNOWN FOR ITS RADIANCE
Alpaca wool has about thirty natural colors (thirty-two to be precise). We also like the luster and natural shine of our friendly camelid’s coat, which lends a beautiful appearance and a sublime texture even after it’s been dyed.
A GREEN ALTERNATIVE
Raised in the wild, the alpaca produces very few greenhouse gases (it eats very little and its digestion is very efficient) and does not uproot the plants it feeds on. It does not damage the ground it walks on, because the bottom of its hooves has soft pads. Its fiber is also eco-friendly since it doesn't require chemical treatment and even less bleaching.
Let's compare: alpaca vs sheep and cashmere.
Unlike sheep, the coat of an alpaca does not contain oil (the fatty substance secreted by the skin of the sheep that mixes with its wool), so it loses very little weight in the wash during its transformation, which makes it up to three times stronger and seven times warmer than sheep wool.
Let's move on to cashmere now. As we all know, it is a relatively expensive fabric that’s delicate to maintain. For the same quality, alpaca clothing is more accessible and washable. They are also more resistant to wear and tear over time and do not break or pill.
