The Legendary Alpaca
The Alpaca from Peru is a legendary packhorse from the Andes. It is a South American Camelid family member and was domesticated by the Inca civilization. Bred for its strength and endurance, the Alpaca is closely related to the superbly fine Llama and the Vicuña.
Alpacas are primarily raised as pack animals in the Andean Mountains of Peru and Bolivia, where temperatures and conditions fluctuate widely. It is rainy in the summer and sunny, dry, and cool in the winter. The Alpaca has adapted, and so has its wool. If this replica ever becomes soiled, simply sprinkle talcum powder on the soiled area and brush softly.
Our Alpaca products at Inter-American Trading are admired around the world for their remarkable softness and warmth. It is also one of the most versatile natural fibers available. Alpaca fiber is thermal and wicks moisture away from the body, so you’ll be warm in the winter, but comfortably cool in the summer.No matter what the season, Alpaca products (made from alpaca wool) will keep you warm and comfortable. It is one of the softest and most luxurious natural fibers on the planet.
