ALPACA DEL PERÚ

For more than 5,000 years, alpacas have offered Peruvian artisans their soft and warm wool, whose master spinners and weavers have long known the secrets of vegetable dyeing. This textile tradition is still very much alive today.
The Peruvian alpaca, also known as Treasure of the Andes, is one of the country's flagship export products. More than 1.5 million Peruvians work in the alpaca textile chain, the country of which is the world's largest producer and is home to 80% of the livestock, or about 4 million animals divided into two breeds: Suri and Huacaya. The breeding is mainly concentrated in the south of Peru, in Puno, Arequipa and Cusco.
Alpacas live between 3000 and 4000 meters altitude, in a natural and preserved environment, and in sometimes extreme climatic conditions which can vary from -20 ° C to + 30 ° C in one day. This is what gives their wool a unique character, at the same time insulating, warm and very soft.
Breeding is done with the greatest respect for the environment, animals and life in general. Alpaca fiber is naturally available in a range of 22 colors, starting from black and going through various variations of gray and brown. Alpaca is light, breathable, soft and does not sting. The fibers are fine while being particularly resistant. They are naturally hypoallergenic and contain no oil or lanolin.
