Description

We hand make all Whispirit alpaca fabrics right here on our alpaca ranch from animals we raise here, too. All fabrics are made by a needlefelting process, during which we combine washed and carded natural alpaca (75-80%) and merino wool (20-25%) into a unique and lovely textile. Most of our fabrics are handfelted into a very sheer silk (Silpaca) or cotton (Copaca) gauze. We also add embellishments of silk, wool, and other natural products to create the looks we like.

Alpaca wool is a natural fiber that looks and feels luxurious. Alpaca fibers are equally, if not more, durable than fiber from sheep or goats. Though less expensive than cashmere, alpaca wool had a higher value than precious metals like silver or gold to the Incas of Peru.

Alpacas come in range of more than twenty naturally gorgeous colors, from inky black to warm chestnut and snowy white, and their wool is lofty, soft, and warm. The alpaca’s environmental footprint is much smaller than a sheep or cashmere goat, and thus sustainable. And if you’ve ever touched felted fabric created from alpaca wool, you know that the texture, loft, softness, drape and lightness of alpaca makes it ideal for most climates and uses.

Please remember that the colors pictured might not be identical, because each alpaca’s color is truly unique. So, if the exact shade of color is important to you please send us a note at [email protected] to request a picture of the exact fabric you’re interested in.
