Alpaca, the Gold of the Andes
The material of this product – 100% Fine Special alpaca wool – is our most durable fibre quality.
Alpaca wool is one of the most extraordinary and rare natural fibres in the world. It’s not well-known by many, but once you get to know it, you’re hooked! Its exceptional breathability, excellent resistance to pilling, and beautiful, fluffy glow are something you just won’t find in other materials.
Unmatched warmth and breathability
Are you always cold, or alternatively, are you unable to wear knits because they are too hot? Alpaca is the perfect solution for both those problems: alpacas have adapted to different temperatures, as it is hot during the day and chilly at night in the Andean mountains where they graze. Over the millennia, alpaca wool has developed special properties in terms of both warmth and breathability.
Alpaca vs. Merino
We often get questions about the properties of alpaca wool compared to other materials. In comparison to merino wool, alpaca wool stands out especially for its superior moisture transfer qualities. Alpaca fibre is untreated and has a natural ability to absorb and transfer moisture effectively.
Commercial merino wool is treated to make it machine washable, in a so-called superwash treatment: the surface of the wool is coated with resin. The treated fibre loses much of its absorption capacity. The surge in the popularity of merino wool has made it increasingly challenging for a customer to discern between different levels of merino wool quality as there is now a vast array of merino qualities available in the market.
Alpaca wool – it only gets better with use
Most of our knits are densely knitted – we don’t cut corners on material use – so they need some time to soften up. This is necessary in order to make garments that last longer, and as you know, longevity is one of our core values. You can speed up the softening by brushing or steaming the knit, or ease it in by wearing a shirt underneath at first. Over time, the inside of the knit gets a soft, fluffy layer, typical for alpaca wool, making it feel really smooth and lightweight on you.
The secret to the smoothness of alpaca wool is in its fibre: it has fewer and tinier scales on its surface than other wools. Thanks to those smooth and long fibres, alpaca wool doesn’t pill easily, which our customers really appreciate.
Finding the right size
You can either use our smart Fitle size advisor or compare the measurements of the chart (below) to your previous garments.
How accurate are the measurements? Will they change over time or after washing?
Some variation may occur in the sizing of a garment made of natural fibres. However, the knitwear has good elasticity and it adapts to your body’s shape during the first days of wear. The product will keep its measurements well.
When in doubt with choosing the right size, please contact us. Our customer service will be happy to help you!
Taking care of your Alpa® alpaca garment is super easy! You don’t have to wash it a lot. In fact, most times, just letting it air outside is enough to make it fresh again. If you wear another shirt under your knitwear, there will be even less need for washing.
If the garment gets stained or musty and is indeed in need of a wash, we recommend washing it by hand in cold water, using a gentle soap and squeezing it softly (avoid rubbing). After rinsing, roll it in a towel to get rid of extra water, reshape it and let it dry on a flat surface to avoid any unwanted stretching.
The whole washing from start to finish takes about 10 minutes – so it’s really easy to take care of your alpaca garment. Washing it once or twice a year should be enough in normal use.
This Alpa® knitwear piece is responsibly manufactured in Lithuania at the production facilities of our long-term partners. Our partners have decades of experience in manufacturing high-quality knitwear products, and together we have uncovered the secrets of knitting with the rare alpaca wool.

I put my dress on for the first time today and I've already received so many compliments even though the working day hasn't really started yet! And it's soooo warm! We have an energy crisis in Germany and there is no real heating anywhere😬 and I am a person who gets cold easily. Still, it's almost TOO warm! I am a German size 38 (88-64-94 cm), here I took the smallest size and it fits perfectly. This is my first order with you, but definitely not the last one 💕
Best dress. Lovely colour. My 9th Alpa, just spot on!
Easily my favourite garment of all time! It's like a big, warm hug. This copper colour is fabulous and the size perfect. Loose enough but still has shape. The only drawback is that it gets electric on freezing temperatures.
Dress is high-quality, fits well and feels luxurious. Beautiful colour. Only con is that it is sometimes too warm in Finnish heated indoors.
So good! I have also used with belts, but I think it is best without. The collar is nice as I can roll it up in different ways.
