  • Dry clean
  • Wide welt sleeve cuffs and bottom hem
  • 28-inch length (size Medium)
  • Relaxed fit
  • Fairly made in Lima, Peru
Fair Indigo Premium Materials
Contrary to what its name may suggest, baby alpaca is sheared from the softest areas of adult alpacas - the back of the alpaca that doesn't come in contact with dirt, trees, etc. It’s stunningly soft and lightweight, but also stronger than sheep’s wool. Baby alpaca is free of the lanolin found in wool so it’s hypoallergenic and less prone to pilling. In addition, it’s up to seven times warmer than wool while being more breathable because of distinctive microscopic air pockets found in the fibers.
 
How does it do good?
The most well-known luxury wool – cashmere - has become environmentally disastrous and heavily reliant on factory farms. Our alpaca, by contrast, is sustainably herded in the Andes Mountains where families have been tending their herds in the same time-honored methods for hundreds of years. The garments are knit in a small fair trade workshop where workers are paid fairly and treated with respect and dignity.

To ensure you get the best fit for your body type and fit preference, use the charts below. For best results, measure over undergarments at fullest part of your bust, at the natural bend in your waist (usually an inch or two above your belly button), and at the fullest part of your hip.
