Luxuriously light, soft and comfortable.
Natural fibers are characterized by breathing naturally, a quality that generates them to serve as thermal insulators:
Fresh in summer, warm in winter.
Being elastic fibers are more resistant to wrinkles and more durable.
Lightweight and insulating fibers that help regulate body temperature. Safe and elegant: these fibers are naturally fireproof. They are presented in natural tones, typical of the animal.
In Argentina we have three indigenous groups of South American camelids: Vicuña, Guanaco and Llama.
Each group has unique and special characteristics, which translate into particular benefits in each case. These animals inhabit very high ground with extreme climates: adaptation to the environment in which they live gives the fiber insulating and thermal qualities. For their docility they can be mixed with other types of fibers such as sheep's wool, silk or cotton, obtaining mixtures that enhance their properties.
The smallest of the camelids, weighs between 40 and 50 kg and has a length of 80 cm. They're wild. Its color is beige or vicuña (light reddish brown) on the back and white on the ventral area and legs.
Domestic artiodáctyl mammal of the Camelidae family, abundant in Puna or plateau of the Andes of Argentina, Bolivia, Chile, Ecuador and Peru.
Artiodactyl mammal (which has hooves), typical of South America. It is a wild, elegant animal with fine bones, with a height of approximately 1.60 meters and about 91 kilograms of weight.
We prepare the fibers for spinning through a series of previous processes. After shearing, the fleece is classified according to the sector of the animal that comes from; also by tone. These batches account for the origin and fineness of fiber by sector. This data allows us to establish the traceability of each batch.
The first selection of fleece fibers is done manually. Within the natural fibers, the Llama contains bristles, which are thicker and crimped fibers, with characteristics other than the rest. They result in itching sensation in the final product. To avoid this, we work on a more thorough selection, where the bristles are discarded and the most subtle fiber is extracted. A spinning-ready fiber is obtained: 20 microns or less for llama fiber, 15 to 12 microns for guanaco fiber, and 13 to 11 microns (or less) for vicuña fiber.
This process is called dehaired.
We are constantly working on the development of a technology applied to the treatment and preparation of Natural South American fibers that allows us to differentiate our final products.
The Creole sheep breed occupies a prominent place in the current Argentine sheep heritage. It is considered the quintessential regional wool.
Its origin is unknown, although it is believed to come from Africa and the Iberian Peninsula. It is the most widely disseminated in Argentina.
Also called Patagonian cashmere, these goats live in northern Argentine Patagonia.
It's usually called diamond fiber. It is one of the most noble silky and resistant natural fibers.
