Linnae hand felts these mittens out of 100% alpaca fibre that is grown and processed here on our farmstead. These are plain mittens that work great for general wear as well as inserts to place within a larger pair of mitts to create greater warmth.

 

Tag Note:

If you would like to customize these mittens with the recievers name on them, please write the correct name in your order notes and I would be happy to do this for no addition cost to you.

 

Alpaca Facts:

-Fibres are nearly completely hollow, wherease wool contains only pockets of air. This additional space creates greater thermal capacity.

-Alpaca is said to be three times warmer than wool.

-Since it lacks lanolin, it is considered to be hypoallergenic.

-Water resistant

-Equivalent softness, more warmth and higher wicking properties than merino wool.

-Alpaca has one of the highest tensile strengths of any natural fibre, second only to silk and some bast fibres (such as hemp and linen).

-Lower tendency to shrink than wool and cashmere.

-Historically, an Incan man's wealth was counted in textiles made from alpaca fibre.
