However, it is hard to keep clean, as it will require to be hand-washed with cold water and wool-approved soap. So, just keep that in mind.

We love alpacas and only work with farms that are humane and love them too. We have farms that have been around for centuries that we are partnered with to ensure that all the wool comes from well cared for animals. These animals are in Peru, where there are the largest herds of alpacas. Each animal is sheared once a year as we do with sheep. They are not injured in any way, in fact, this helps them remain healthy, as their coats grow thick and cause skin issues as it gets longer. Alpacas used to wild but they were domesticated long ago by the people of Peru. The long traditions of weaving and caring for these animals has been passed down from generation to generation.
