It's here. This is the thrifted 80s sweater you've been dreaming of in responsible, cloud-weight, Baby Alpaca. With a perfectly puffed shoulder and a chunky neckband, it's your new favorite. (This one comes in Heartbeat.)
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)
An easy fit that is a little roomier than our signature slim fit, but not quite oversized.
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.
