Buy an eco-responsible alpaca wool sweater

In this article, find all the good reasons to choose an alpaca wool sweater at SWEET ALPAGA.

- The choice of a high-end material with exceptional properties

At SWEET ALPAGA, we prioritize the quality of our collection, and that starts with the choice of an exceptional material that is recognized around the world as one of the most luxurious. Indeed, we knit our sweaters with the most beautiful alpaca yarn, called "baby alpaca", which is the finest alpaca fibers.

The fineness of the yarn obtained will be comparable to that of cashmere, but with a much higher resistance, which will prevent it from pilling. To this finesse is added the softness of alpaca wool, as well as its warmth. Seven times warmer than sheep's wool, alpaca wool will be much lighter. It is also thermoregulatory thanks to the tiny air bubbles found on the fiber ; it can thus be worn in any season. 

- The pleasure of wearing an alpaca wool sweater, 100% natural and ecological

Alpaca wool is an ecological wool. Alpacas are raised on the high plateaus of the Andes Cordilleras, in small farms belonging to shepherd families ; Here, there is no intensive breeding ; alpacas live in freedom and feed on the vegetation of the Andes. The very great diversity of colors in the alpaca (about 24) allows to obtain beautiful and solid natural shades (from white to black, including all shades of beige, brown, gray). To obtain other colors, natural dyes such as desert plants are often used, or dyes that respect the environment and are guaranteed to be azo free. All the yarns we use are certified in accordance with REACH and OEKO TEX 100 standards.

At SWEET ALPAGA, we attach great importance to people, and to the way our collection is made.
