Fair Indigo Premium Materials
Contrary to what its name may suggest, baby alpaca comes from the softest underbelly area of adult alpacas. 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.
