100% Baby Alpaca from Peru. Oeko Tex certified.

Baby alpaca fibres are super soft and lightweight. It is known for providing super insulation due to the microscopic air pockets in the fibres, therefore it keeps you warm in the winter and cool in the summer. The same air pockets make the fibres feel as light as air and yet the fibre is very strong, meaning it lasts longer than most other similar fibres like wools, cashmere and silk. With care, alpaca knits become heirloom pieces that you will pass down through the generations. 

Sizes: S/M, M/L

Measurements taken flat across the front of garment. The knit is quite stretchy. 
S-M - Length from shoulder to hem 51cm, Width taken across chest 52cm, Arm Length from top of shoulder seam 60cm
M-L - Length from shoulder to hem 57cm, Width taken across chest 57cm, Arm Length from top of shoulder seam 65cm

N.B: Alpaca fabric behaves differently to wool and tends to "drop" a little with wear.

Colours: Lavender Melange (low impact dyes), also in Salt&Pepper (listed separately)

Care: Air between uses. Handwash only when required. Reshape while damp and dry flat. Mend any thread pulls or holes immediately.
