I wore it all night, sleeping in a hammock above the snow-covered ground, and again, stayed warm. And on the days with clear skies but still cold, I wear it with out a jacket and stay warm.

I feel clammy and cannot shake a feeling of cold. In alpaca, my body felt cozy all evening.

Wil Rickards from ENGEARMENT

The clothing is equally comfortable to wear whether it’s hot or cold. The fine fibers absorb almost no water - neither rain nor sweat.

CONNECT WITH NATURE: When hiking with pure Royal Alpaca, you are using a renewable fiber from free-ranging Alpacas from the Andes Mountains. A big step away from synthetics while being technically superior, Alpaca is the way to go! 

PART OF THE ENVIRONMENT: Alpacas are unique in how they interact with their environment. Their footprint is minimalistic, damaging the least amount of vegetation as they roam the ranges freely. As they eat, their teeth cut the grass instead of crushing it. This allows new grass to continue growing without damaging the plant's root systems, protecting the ecosystem.
