Baby Alpaca and Mulberry Silk, Peru

Alpaca wool is not only softer than lamb’s wool—it’s a more environmentally friendly option as well. While the lanolin and guard hair of sheep fibers require extensive washing and scouring in chemical baths, alpaca fibers, naturally lacking these, need only a light wash to achieve their cloudy, silken texture. This means alpaca wool production uses fewer chemicals and less water, leaving a much smaller environmental impact. Moreover, alpacas emit fewer greenhouse gasses, and their prickle-free wool is naturally hypoallergenic, biodegradable and recyclable.

  Arcana’s alpaca wool is sourced from Incalpaca, a Peruvian company deeply rooted in ancient Andean culture. Their respect for the Andes’ precious ecosystem and native people is central to their mission to produce the finest wool for the most discerning customers. Native people have thrived side-by-side with their alpaca herds in the Andes for millennia, and thus alpaca textiles are as integral to Peruvian identity as the mountains that frame their landscape.
