Marta Bernal. Founder. 2015.
My husband and I left our life in Madrid behind and went to seek adventure in South America.
After traveling around Peru we got to know the wool in the Andes.
Winding our way deeper into the Andes we discovered the existence of alpacas. It’s luxurious softness, incredible warmth and rich colors enthralled us and inspired us to create Petit Alpaca.
In Peru, we travelled to Cuzco and Arequipa and we learned the story of Alpaca, and how it was once the clothing of Inca kings and of how the skills needed to spin and knit it have been handed down over generations.
We invite you to discover this extremely soft wool and feel the Andes!
BABY ALPACA WOOL:
Baby Alpaca Wool is soft and luxurious as cashmere, stronger than mohair, and warmer and softer than sheep wool. Because it doesn’t contain lanolin, alpaca wool is hypoallergenic and doesn’t irritate the skin. It naturally repels water and has antibacterial properties so your knitwear will stay clean longer.
Alpaca wool has a thermal property: It acts as an insulator that maintains body temperature at normal levels because of the air gap or cavity that has each of the fibers. A good idea when in some of the European countries we get temperatures of -12°C.
