Kundenbewertung Katrin Bayerle aus München trägt Alpaka Tunika Una von Alpakin in grau

I'm really excited about my sweaters from Alpakin: I love wearing them in my free time but also in the office under a blazer. The sweaters keep me warm in the cold and I don't sweat in them when it's warmer.

Kundenbewertung Magnus Eckert aus Eppstein trägt Herren Alpaka Pullover von Alpakin in dunkelbraun

The alpaca sweater is beautifully made and has a great shine. I wear it directly on my skin in the summer and with a shirt underneath in the winter. You can tell straight away that it is not a mass-produced item. I also like that it needs to be washed less often.

ALPACA SWEATER 100 PERCENT

... steht für maximale Wollqualität

Alpaca sweaters made from 100 percent alpaca wool are much harder to find than alpaca-wool blends. The large fashion chains mostly use blends for their alpaca pullovers, which usually only contain between 15% and 30% alpaca. The far greater proportion of such a pullover is made up of conventional sheep's wool, nylon and, to a small extent, elastane. The reason for this is that blended fabrics with alpaca content can also be called alpaca pullovers. Many buyers do not look closely and do not know that their alpaca sweater hardly contains any alpaca wool.

In our collection you will only find 100 percent alpaca sweaters, because only then can the alpaca wool develop its properties. The most well-known advantage of alpaca wool is its comfort, as it is warm and, in the highest baby alpaca quality, also soft and non-scratchy. If you mix alpaca wool with other fibers, not only are its special properties lost, but it can also become scratchy. This is because fibers are different lengths and thicknesses, and coarser fibers do not combine well with the fine baby alpaca fibers.

Alpaca wool is obtained from the fur of alpacas. The South American camels are bred and dependent on human care. For thousands of years, their fine fur has been used to make high-quality natural fiber clothing such as warm cardigans or soft scarves.

This makes Alpaca sweaters 100 percent unique

The characteristics of alpaca wool are so diverse and unique that more and more people are choosing alpaca instead of cashmere.

Maximum comfort

Unlike merino or cashmere, alpaca wool is available in five different qualities, which differ in their softness and price. Baby alpaca is the softest alpaca wool and does not scratch. It is the rarest alpaca fiber, as it is only obtained from protected body parts of adult alpacas. Only around 200 grams of baby alpaca out of a total of up to six kilograms of wool per animal is obtained from alpaca shearing. Baby alpaca sweaters are not only softer than conventional alpaca wool, but also warmer and have a noble sheen.

Icon Thermometer für Temperatur

Warmest wool

Alpaca wool is not only the warmest wool in the world , but is also suitable for all seasons thanks to the thermoregulation of its fibers. In the high Andes mountains, where alpacas live, they are exposed to extreme weather fluctuations. Their wool has adapted to this harsh environment; the alpaca fiber contains hollow spaces that warm at low temperatures and dissipate heat at higher temperatures. A coat for all seasons, for us that means thin alpaca sweaters for spring and summer and thick, warm wool sweaters made of 100 percent alpaca wool for the cold season.

Icon Atmungsaktivität

Breathable

Your 100 percent alpaca pullover should not only keep you warm, but also not make you sweat. You are well advised to use breathable alpaca wool that wicks away moisture. Merino wool also has similar breathable properties, which makes it popular for outdoor clothing.

Best skin feeling

Alpaca wool is suitable for allergy sufferers because the wool has natural, hypoallergenic properties. Due to the low lanolin (wool fat) content, alpaca wool can be washed less often. Alpaca wool neutralizes bacteria that cause odors. It is dirt-repellent, dries quickly and, as an easy-care fiber, can also be washed in the washing machine.

Responsibility

Alpaca pullover 100% animal friendly

So that buyers can rely on wool that is free from animal cruelty in good conscience, there are certificates such as the Responsible Alpaca Standard (RAS), which ensures that the New World camelids are used in a way that is appropriate for animal welfare. We only make our clothing from RAS-certified wool, as we make no compromises when it comes to animal welfare. Alpaca wool should not be demonized as animal cruelty due to a few reports, as it has secured the livelihood of the rural population in Peru and other countries, both then and now.

Alpaca pullover 100 percent for women and men – That's why Alpakin

We personally selected our collection of alpaca pullovers for women and alpaca pullovers for men in Peru. With our 100 percent alpaca sweaters, we want to send a message in the textile offer. Clothing made from alpaca wool stands for sustainable, environmentally conscious slow fashion in which neither people nor animals are exploited. We distance ourselves from cheap fast fashion mass-produced goods and instead offer exclusive, unique items from Peru, the land of the alpacas. To produce our clothing and accessories, we work with family-run businesses that primarily employ women.

How do I wash my 100 percent alpaca pullover?

Alpaca pullovers made from 100% alpaca wool are easier to care for than you might think. They can be washed in the washing machine or by hand as often as you like without losing their softness. Thanks to the long, strong alpaca fiber, alpaca pullovers are 100 percent hard-wearing, tear-resistant and long-lasting. Alpaca sweaters should only be washed in the washing machine using the wool program, at a maximum of 30 degrees Celsius and no more than 600 revolutions per minute. Add gentle wool detergent and avoid fabric softener. After the alpaca pullover has been washed, do not put it in the dryer or iron it, but dry it lying flat on a clothes rack.
