What Samantha Holmes says about the products…


Historically known as the “Gold of the Incas”, Alpaca fleece was once treasured by Inca Royalty. 500 years on, we have sought a little innovation with our signature yarn, which combines fine micron Baby Alpaca (not the be confused with inferior grade alpaca commonly seen in tourist markets)

We select only the finest Peruvian Huacaya and Suri Alpaca fur for our products and prefer the beauty and character of the natural skin colour, rather than using dyes. The skins are tanned, matched and sewn by skilled artisans whose painstaking traditions have been passed down from one generation to the next. The fur we us is from alpaca that have died of natural causes - from baby Alpacas – or “cria”, as they are known. The younger, weaker animals often perish in the harsh Andean Winter. The alpacas have not been killed for their fur. Alpacas can live for 20 years, promising a lifetime of shearing potential of far greater value than a single pet.

This garment was created to ensure ultimate softness and luxury handle. Therefore, due to its fine, delicate nature, please take care when trying on with jewellery. Variation in the finished product may arise as a result of the natural handcrafted process.
