Laurel Highlands Alpacas, Pennsylvania USA

WHY ALPACA IS A GREAT CHOICE

ALPACA IS A SUSTAINABLE FIBER

We source our alpaca fiber from our Pennsylvania animals.

Alpacas nibble only the tops of grasses and other plants; they do not rip plants out of the ground, allowing the vegetation to grow back.

Alpacas have a high fiber yield per animal:
1
alpaca shearing = 4 alpaca sweaters

And unlike goats and sheep, which have sharp hooves that can damage pasture and soil, alpacas have two toed feet with soft pads that leave no footprint, but allow the alpacas to navigate rocky areas easily and safely.

HIGH PERFORMANCE

Moisture wicking and odor-free. It's not necessary to wash alpaca fiber garments after each and every use.

Alpaca fiber has keratin protein with natural antibacterial properties. It's hard to make our alpaca garments smell.

WARM & LIGHTWEIGHT

Soft and lightweight without sacrificing warmth.

LUXURIOUS & AFFORDABLE

Alpaca is similar to cashmere in its soft, luxurious feel, and not nearly as expensive.
