Most of our vest fabrics are made from 80% alpaca from our herd and 20% merino wool from other US herds. We hand felt our fabrics at our ranch in our fabric design center using an American-made FeltLOOM. We also use hand-dyed fabrics to create unique looks. The black, grey, fawn, brown and white fabrics you see are the natural colors of our herd, which we breed and raise for their highest quality, luxurious alpaca fleece.
The lightweight, almost airy feel of our inner wear fabrics come from a single layer of felted alpaca. Inner weight can be worn on cool days, or inside in air-conditioned environments, without the wearer overheating. Outer weight fabrics are thicker, with three layers of felted alpaca, but with the lack of bulk that alpaca is known for. Outer weight is suitable for cooler temperatures, and without the bulk of thicker wool fabrics or down feathers.
We embellish some of our fabrics using hand-dyed yarns and silks. When we seek out unusual and creative buttons, clasps and other embellishments for our alpaca jackets, we source them from local handcrafters wherever possible. Each jacket is unique; no two are alike.
We design our alpaca vests to show off these one-of-a-kind fabrics and have local talented seamstresses hand sew each item we sell. Now, you can purchase U.S. handmade alpaca garments, accessories and fabrics right here, in the United States, under our Whispirit label.
