The 26-mile Camino Inca, or Inca Trail, to Machu Picchu passes through small settlements, Inca ruins, cloud forests, and alpine tundra. The colors of this superfine alpaca sweater are inspired by that trek: orange zigzags for the distant mountain views, yellowish green for the stones that pave the trail, blue for the Urubamba River and the Andean sky.


Made in Peru. 100% superfine alpaca. Men's sizes M (38-40), L (42-44), XL (46-48).


Hand-wash.


Indigenous people in South America have raised alpaca for its fleece for thousands of years before Europeans learned about the animal and exported alpaca fiber to Spain in the 16th and 17th centuries. Today this domesticated animal is bred throughout the world, but its native habitat is the Andean Altiplano: Ecuador, southern Peru, northern Bolivia, and northern Chile.


Descended from the wild vicuña, alpacas resemble a cross between a llama and a sheep. The fleece is similar to sheep's wool, but is usually softer, less prickly, and has minimal lanolin content, making it virtually hypoallergenic. Its extreme warmth, relatively light weight, and natural resistance to water make alpaca wool an ideal fabric for the frigid winters of the Andean Altiplano. These qualities have also led to a rise in the use of alpaca fiber in outdoor gear and active wear, although it is also easily spun into a fine enough yarn for use in suits and other dress wear.


Most alpaca products can be treated as you would an object made of sheep's wool—hand wash using a mild soap and lukewarm water, or dry clean—but check the tag or manufacturer's instructions for specific instructions.

      Comments about Camino Inca Alpaca Sweater:

      What a nice sweater! I had no idea what Alpaca felt like but really liked the colors. Soft beyond comprehension. I had to feel it a couple times to believe it. I have Cashmere and Silk sweaters and this Alpaca sweater is as good if not better.
