Wool is a fibre obtained from sheep's hair. There are different types of wool depending on the race of the sheep, the best quality being that of the Merino sheep. It is a very soft, flexible, breathable and warm wool that retains its colour very well.
The Alpaca is native to the Andes, Peru. It is an exquisite fibre, with a series of characteristics that give it exceptional quality, it is very soft, very warm, thermo-regulating, does not retain odours, and its structure with hardly any flakes means that it does not feel like it's slipping. The alpaca pieces bring a lot of heat and weigh little, they are very pleasant to wear.

COMMON FEATURES IN OUR SUSTAINABLE LUXURY FABRICS.
This piece is unique, designed and handwoven by us on a wooden loom, moved by our hands and feet, strand by strand handwoven with the best quality natural fiber, the best to wear in contact with your skin and taking care of all aspects, so that you have a piece, timeless, durable and of great quality.
All its finishes are made by hand. There are no knots in the warp (vertical threads) or weft (horizontal threads), the splices are inserted by hand into the selvages with a needle.
We wash it by hand with natural soap, to verify the quality of the fiber, the dyeing and its final measurement, all the pieces handwoven on the artisanal loom shrink in their first wash because the fibers reposition themselves, then they do not shrink any more. And to finish we iron it by hand with steam to give it a better presentation and you can appreciate all its qualities.
