Modern Contemporary Alpaca Clothing & Accessories for Her, Him & Home
At Alicia Peru our heritage and continued passion is for natural fibers and our fiber of choice is alpaca. We have been producing our contemporary line of alpaca sweaters, alpaca cardigans, alpaca coats and alpaca jackets for women since 2008. We design our products and choose our color boards here in the Seattle area and then collaborate with small to medium sized workshops in Peru that craft and create each of our products with experienced hands and a mix of modern knitting techniques always using premium baby alpaca and alpaca wool blends.
We cannot herald enough the benefits of alpaca as a fiber, it is lightweight, breathable, soft and durable. We like to consider it a Sustainable Alternative to Cashmere and here are three easy reasons why:
Preserve – alpacas graze gently resulting in easier regrowth and regeneration of grasslands.
Choose (efficiency) – one alpaca equals 20 cashmere goats to produce approximately 4-5 garments annually.
Conserve – alpacas drink less water than goats, with global herds at 5 million alpacas vs. 70 million cashmere goats – this is water saved!
Alicia Peru has spent the last two years expanding our home furnishings line. We have over 20 different color and styles of baby alpaca room throws, a new range of cruelty free alpaca fur decorative pillow cushions and a made to order line of hand loomed cotton and eco-upscaled alpaca/cotton decorative pillow cushions.
In addition, we have expanded our home and gift products to include more alpaca wraps, alpaca fur slippers and alpaca knitted gloves, beanies and scarves. Our products can give comfort and warmth during the colder months of the year or durability and breathability during the warmer months. Welcome to the expanding world of Alicia Peru premium alpaca products.
