The Alpaca is a member of the South American Llama and Vicuña family.The Alpaca provides the main means of sustenance for thousands of families in the high Andes, with a population of 3.5 million alpacas in Peru, representing 75% of the world's total population.
Alpacas produce some of the world's finest and most luxurious natural fibers, one of the softest fibers that you will ever feel. Soft as cashmere and seven times warmer, three times stronger than sheep's wool, considered to be the lightest of wool fibers. The luster and beauty of Alpaca as a material is un-matched; the feel is soft, luxurious and comfortable. Another wonderful quality about alpaca fur is that it is naturally hypoallergenic and lanolin free, wonderful for those with children and allergies.
No Alpacas that we source our materials from are killed for their fur. There is a prohibition in effect against killing alpacas for their hides: it is illegal, impractical, and immoral to do so. Our producers only use humanely acquired Alpaca hides to make our creations, sourced as a by-product. In Peru, Alpaca is a culinary delicacy, therefore their hides, like cow hides, are a by-product of the demand for alpaca meat. Alpacas are farmed and raised in a manner that encourages long life spans and are sheared annually. The longer they live, the more wool can be shorn from them. The majority of alpacas have died of natural causes, due to the rough living conditions and high altitude of the South American Andean Mountains. It would not be practical or ethical to kill Alpacas simply for their hides. The Alpaca industry is a very well regulated and animal friendly industry. Our producers use the hides of humanely acquired Alpaca to make our fur creations. Alpaca Plush closely follows all the laws that prohibit and regulate any mistreatment of alpacas.
