Luxurious Alpaca Clothing in Contemporary and Classic Styles
Alpaca fiber is a renewable resource that grows yearly. Alpacas are sheared annually and produce four to six pounds of one of the world’s most luxurious fibers. Softer than silk and warmer, lighter and stronger than wool, it comes in 22 natural colors. Alpaca fiber has a hollow core. This allows the fiber to breathe. The hollow core also traps pockets of air which act as insulators against both cold and heat. For this reason, alpaca fiber is the only natural fiber that is warm in the winter and cool in the summer. Because alpaca fiber does not contain lanolin, it is naturally hypoallergenic. After the annual shearing, alpaca fiber is sorted into different fiber classifications. The highest quality, finest, and softest fiber is classified as ‘Baby Alpaca’. Mount Caesar Alpacas exclusively uses baby alpaca fiber in all its products.
Our custom designed Alpaca Socks, Alpaca Sweaters, Alpaca Clothing, Alpaca Shawls and other alpaca accessories are made from 100% baby alpaca fiber, with no synthetics. This makes our products environmentally friendly, and much stronger than other products you will find on the market. Our products are hand knit by artisans to the highest standards, and are made to last. With proper care, your Mt. Caesar Alpaca products will last a lifetime.
Mt. Caesar Alpacas is committed to the sustainability of our planet. We use only ethically sourced materials in our designs. Our ALPACA products are all natural, made exclusively with 100% natural alpaca fiber which is grown and shorn annually, primarily by small family farmers in the Peruvian Highlands.
Because our garments are all natural, they are 100% biodegradable and compost back into the land. Energy used in the production of ALPACA fiber is 90% less than that required in the production of synthetics. The production of ALPACA fiber is also carbon neutral.
Natural fibers are of major economic importance to many developing countries and vital to the livelihoods and food security of millions of small scale farmers and processors, including 120,000 alpaca herding families in the Andes. By choosing natural fibers you boost the sector’s contribution to economic growth and help fight hunger and rural poverty.
