Alpaca Products

Alpaca Fashion Accessories now available

Alpacas are shorn once a year. Each alpaca produces 2-4 kg of fleece called fibre. We send the very best of each clip to a mill in Biella, near Milan, where it is processed into yarn.
We have produced a new range of eco-friendly fashion accessories from our alpaca fibre in Italy. All products are entirely natural and no chemicals are used either in rearing our alpacas or in the manufacturing process.

We are also immensely proud that a wonderful textile shop, Emporio d’Arte Tessile, in the exclusive Mediterranean resort of Maratea in southern Italy is stocking our products.
