Sustainable, fair-traded 50% alpaca wool from Peru, 50% acrylic
About the Alpaca:
A member of the camelid family, alpacas are the only species in the world whose hair naturally displays a wide array of colours (up to 22 different hues) varying from black to white, through different shades of brown and grey.
They are fortunate to have hair with unique thermal properties as they have to adapt to the extreme weather conditions of the Peruvian Andes with altitudes reaching up to 15,000 ft (4000 m) and beyond, and temperatures as low as 5 F (-15C). Their luxurious fibre renews itself almost yearly.
