Alpaca fibers naturally form air barriers to maintain temperature in the most efficient way - warm in cold weather and cool in hot weather.
It is a semi-hollow natural fiber that traps air, retains it and insulates it even in extreme humidity or wind conditions.
Find out more about the main properties of our fibers:
The fiber naturally absorbs moisture or sweat caused by the human body, transfers it to the outside and there evaporation takes place. Keep you dry, comfortable and odor-free.
SOFT AND COMFORTABLE
The brilliant natural softness of the alpaca fiber is very beneficial to the skin, has a slight friction on direct contact and reduces the risk of blisters caused by imperfections in the footwear.
The protein fibers are also remarkably strong, cushioned and odorless for all Andina Outdoors products.
SUSTAINABILITY AND ETHICS
Alpaca herds live freely in harmony in their own natural ecosystems and their wool is sheared once a year.
This sustainable and abuse-free industry brings better living conditions and prosperity to one of the most remote regions in the world.
