Alpaca wool is a true gift of nature. The Alpaca is a domesticated animal (similar to the llama) native to the Andean highlands of South America. The unique cellular structure of their fleece offers protection from the extreme temperature changes of their native habitat, which can range from severe frost to scorching heat in a single day.
Thus, Alpaca is unlike other woolens: firstly, it’s naturally temperature regulating, so it offers perfect warmth without overheating. Plus, its exceptional moisture wicking abilities keep skin comfortably cool and dry throughout the night.
Alpaca fibers contain no lanolin, so we’re able to launder it simply with an environmentally friendly detergent. Once cleaned, it’s carded and culled into a quilt-batting that is light, fluffy, and wonderfully warming—but not overly so. It’s a true alternative, offering great convenience for those seeking all-natural fibers in their basic bedding.
