About Alpa

Our story

 The two month adventure in the middle of South American forests and mountains was life changing for our founder Heikki: he discovered a rare treasure – alpaca wool.

As the temperature in the mountains was changing from blazing hot to freezing cold, the alpaca wool knits we got from the locals kept us comfortable, enfolding us in warmth with their silky touch.

We had never worn anything like this and wanted to combine this wonderful material with scandinavian aesthetics – Alpa was born.


Our promise – the best piece of knitwear you will ever have.

The best piece of knitwear you will ever have.

Timeless elegance

Elegance and style – not fast changing trends.

Our knits are known for the beautiful, distinctive knitting textures and patterns for sophisticated, understated look.

We like to do things properly

All our knit garments are manufactured in Lithuania with modern Stoll-knitting machines. We knit our garments fully fashioned whenever it is possible – fully fashioned garments are more durable and produce less waste.

Our yarns come from Peru, the homeland of alpacas, and the yarn suppliers are carefully chosen and personally visited by our team.
