Sustainability of Alpaca Fiber:

  • Peruvian Alpacas live in their natural habitat. Living in the proper altitude/climate and eating their regular diet, allows them to grow high quality, healthy fur.
  • Alpacas have soft feet instead of hooves, so they do not harm the soil.
  • Alpaca's sharp teeth cut grass instead of pulling the grass from the soil. This allows grass to continue growing.
  • Alpaca fiber does not contain oil, unlike sheep's wool and cashmere. So, its cleaning process requires very little water and no harsh chemicals.
  • Alpacas produce more fiber than sheep per year. Due to their efficient digestion.
  • Alpacas require shearing once per year to avoid overheating, and they are not harmed during the shearing process.
