In history, the Incas believed alpaca fiber was worth more than precious metals, and was reserved for royalty. This empire thrived thousands of years before the Roman empire on the breeding and production of alpacas. The weavers of Peru are highly skilled, passing down their knowledge from generation to generation. It is a country known for its exceptional textiles. The towns and villages produce traditional, multi colored designs of textiles.
The alpaca live mostly without any boundaries in the highlands of the Peruvian Andes and are not harmed during the shearing process. Their soft padded feet are gentle on the grass terrain and they graze without destroying the root system of the area. Alpaca is the only animal that produces up to 28 natural colors and can be blended into an infinite array of natural shades from inky black to warm chestnuts and snowy white. It is easily dyed in any color and always retains its natural luster.
