This roll neck, cloud weight Alpaca sweater has an effortless shape that perfectly skims the top of your Levi’s… but our favorite part is that extra chunky rib cuff. It adds just the right amount of balance to an otherwise airy silhouette. (This one comes in Tangerine.)
55% Baby Alpaca, 21% Wool, 24% Polyamide, 1-5 years to biodegrade depending on the color and treatment of the yarn, the synthetic portion will remain anywhere from 20-200 years.
What we love
- Alpaca’s don’t overgraze and their droppings acts as a fertilizer to keep their land happy and healthy (overgrazed land releases carbon into the environment)
- Choosing Peruvian Baby Alpaca for our sweaters preserves a tradition that provides income to many artisans and helps the local economy of the indigienous people of the Andes
- “Farm to garment” which dramatically reduces the carbon footprint
What we don't love
- Synthetic fibers have been added to our sweaters (to make the yarns more affordable)
Full length sleeve
A straight fit, loose through the body (like a box), and meant to be short.
55% Baby Alpaca 21% Wool 24% Polyamide, soft, hypoallergenic.
We recommend using an environmentally friendly dry cleaner to handle your Baby Alpaca sweaters, as hand-washing or submerging them in water will cause shrinkage. As with any sweater Alpaca can pill. It isn't uncommon to notice this the most in areas where there is friction created by fabric rubbing against fabric. Using a sweater stone (we love this one) can easily refresh your Baby Alpaca clothing.
