Here at Alpacastuff we have a range of unusual and practical hats. The natural colours in aran weight are 100% alpaca whilst the dyed yarn is 75% alpaca.
Alpaca is renowned for its thermal qualities and is water and weather resistant. Its fibre structure makes it much less likely to irritate and often people who are allergic to sheep's wool can tolerate alpaca. Alpaca is famous for its warmth, softness and durability.
Our hats are hand knitted and we have a variety of styles and colours. Browse through from standard beanie hats to our classic cloche.
People buy wool for its warmth and protection against cold winds. In actuality, alpaca fibre is warmer, stronger and more insulating.
Alpacas are native to the Andean region of South America. They are raised on high ground with vast temperature swings, ranging from - 4F at night to 70+F in the daytime. Through evolution the alpaca fibre provides superior thermal insulation.
