Alpaca hair also happens to be one of the most expensive fibers, but considering its benefits, the price is well worth it.
Treat yourself to the ultimate luxury of a 100% Alpaca Scarf. This wonderful fiber is naturally hypoallergenic, exceptional quality, smooth and silky and eco-friendly.

Alpaca classifications only happen in the Peru Andean regions (and some in nearby Bolivia) These classifications are done by hand, by artisans who select the finest alpaca fibre between both breeds of Alpaca (Suri and Huacaya). This Alpaca fibre selection is impossible to be done in any other part of the World.
By purchasing this Scarf, you are helping to support many Andean highland families which live below the poverty line. Our manufacturer purchases the Alpaca fibre directly from these families at a fair-trade price and processes the beginning to end product. Yarn is not purchased from the oligopoly company players in Peru unlike other products on the market.
