The Perfect Base Layer

the perfect layer. best mid layer. best base layer. alpaca

Are you thinking about hiking to Machu Picchu, trekking the Appalachian Trail, or looking in style in the Alps ... 

Merino layers were the best wool if you wanted to avoid using synthetic fibers and needed the best sweater to keep you dry and warm.

That was until Alpaca came along...

Alpaca base layers do everything Merino does and more!

Not only does it whisk more sweat away from the body (keeping you dry) and its semi hollow fibers insulate heat better (while being lighter), it is even softer, anti-microbial, hypoallergenic, and super ecological.

How does Alpaca do it all?


They were bred in the vast Andes mountains (14,000+ ft) for thousands of years by ancient Peruvian societies. Over the millennia, Alpaca developed fleece that could withstand drastic changes in weather. Each individual fiber naturally whisks away moisture, had microscopic pockets that retain heat, smooth fibers give it a soft handle, it's incredibly light, breathable, naturally resists odor and wrinkling, contains no lanolin, the highest tensile strength, resists solar radiation... and the list goes on!
