The pure alpaca Cadena shawl is more than perfect for cool weather; it’s perfect in a dozen different ways. Throw it over one shoulder or throw it over both for extra warmth. Wear it open when you’re breezing down the street or wind it around your neck like an extravagant muffler. You supply the imagination, and the Cadena will supply the lightweight, silky means to make it real.
Alpaca – The Royal fibre of the Incas
Alpaca fibre comes from the alpaca, an animal like a llama that lives at high altitudes in Bolivia and Peru. Its lustrous, silky feel sets it apart from other fibres, and during the Inca Empire (1200 AD – 1532 AD), only the royal family could use clothing made of Alpaca.
Why buy Alpaca?
Alpaca is a rare fibre with limited production. It is warmer, softer and far more durable than wool. Due to its long fibre length, alpaca will never pill. Your Alpaca item is an investment that will still look beautiful many years after its purchase.
Alpaca is a Socially Responsible fibre
Alpaca is an ecologically sustainable “green” fibre. Alpacas graze freely as they have for millenia. The husbandry of alpaca sustains rural families in the highlands of Peru, enabling them to stay in their traditional homes.
How to care for your Alpaca clothing:
Alpaca is not delicate. Care for exactly like wool.
Hand-wash in cold water or dry-clean.
Lay flat to dry.
Store neatly folded – do not hang.
Store in a moth-free environment.
With this care, an Alpaca item will stand up to years of everyday usage with few signs of wear.
