These are breathable, non-itchy & hypoallergenic mittens that are more durable than wool. Suitable for all, this is made of pure Peruvian alpaca - one of the highest performing technical fibres.

For this line of Alpaca apparel, we take you directly to the source: the rural mountainsides of Peru. These hand-woven Alpaca mittens are designed to keep you toasty through the coldest of Canadian winters, and cozy when there is no snow on the ground.

Fashioned from one of the world’s softest, silkiest, and most luxuriant sustainable fibres, this artisan-made set is warm and luxurious. Suitable for wet weather outings, alpaca has an ability to resist water and, even when damp, provide warmth. The hollow fibres of the alpaca fibre trap air in their core which provides enduring insulation.

Ideal for hikes, skis, campfires, walks and more. Put them on, and go get ready to get hands on!

Caring for Alpaca wool:

  • Hand wash with mild soap, or machine wash on cold, delicate cycle.
  • Do not wring, scrunch, stretch, or twist.
  • Hang to dry or dry clean, do not dry in a dryer machine.
  • Groom with a light brush in direction of the fibre.
  • Can iron in the same direction on a low setting.

A collective since 2003, this group works with over 100 ethical & ecological Peruvian Producers who are fairly compensated for their technical abilities. Their mission is to allow artisans to be recognized for their talents and abilities, for economic development as well as to offer high-end apparel and accessories.
