The alpaca (Vicugna pacos) is a domestic ungulate animal originated from the Vicugna. It is grown in the high parts of the Andes at 3500-5000 m above sea level, in the territories of Ecuador, Peru, Chile, Argentina and Bolivia. The alpaca reaches up to 1m hight, weighs about 70kg and has soft and long fleece (up to 15-20cm). The South American animal alpaca provides the shiny silk wool for this noble material. An animal can give enough wool for a sweater annually. Although the alpaca fleece is very beautiful and light, it is very durable and elastic. The individual fibers of the alpaca wool are hollow inside. This makes them extremely good in retaining heat. Thick silky fabric is used almost exclusively for high-quality woolen garments such as ladies' coats and costumes. The natural shades of the alpaca are inherent for the wool itself and are called natural colors. The Paqu (from the Pangos - alpaca ) Splash (from the dyeing method) is a clean ecological alpaca from the high Peruvian Andes, woven into a fine thread and hand-painted in a variety of colorful areas. Very suitable for lace knitting, fine blouses, vests, scarves, hats, childrens' knitwear. Ideal choice for precision knitters to show craftsmanship and finesse.
