Alpaca wool is a natural, super soft fabric and has many advantages compared to sheep’s wool or cashmere. It is hypoallergenic because it contains no lanolin such as sheep wool. The structure of alpaca wool is also stronger than that of sheep wool or cashmere. It sheds a lot less, so it is very comfortable to wear and does not sting. Besides this, it is dirt and water repellent. It is a 100% natural product and fair trade.
The wool used for the Alpaca Loca products comes from alpaca’s from Ecuador. The products are all made by hand in Ecuador by a community of weavers.
