Alpaca clothing helps you move freely and feel connected with your surroundings. HIKE WITH THE BREEZE: Soft and breathable fibers keep you comfortable no matter how difficult your surroundings are.This allows new grass to continue growing without damaging the plant's root systems, protecting the ecosystem.

    Alpaca is softer, lighter, stronger, and warmer per micron than Merino and Cashmere. It's shorter and less frequent scales allow for a softer feel while whisking away moisture from the skin. The fibers have microscopic pockets that keep the fabric light while retaining more heat than wool. Alpaca is naturally odor resistant and contains no lanolin.
