Alpaca fibre is a creation of nature. The Peruvian Highlands started out as a source of fibre for us but also quickly became the source of our inspiration. Alpacas have been bred since ancient times. The alpacas have been living at altitudes ranging from 2,500 to over 4,500 metres above sea level for thousands of years, withstanding extreme weather conditions which can vary from +30°C to –20°C in a single day. If this noble fibre did not have certain special properties, the animal would die.
The story of our finest and unique baby alpaca narrates a deep-rooted heritage, skilful craftsmanship and a culture of Peruvian artisans that have refined their skills through generations, thus enabling the raw natural fibre to be transformed into beautiful, sustainable garments of exceptional quality —each piece in our collection is designed to be timeless and made to last.
At Pacalpa, we are the leading company in the field of transforming this noble fibre into luxury yarns, working in harmony with nature, the environment and with the utmost respect for the local population.
