Sustainability & Traceability

Through the Pacomarca project of alpaca breeding, we are striving to improve the fineness of the alpaca fiber in Peru. With state-of-the-art techniques in animal science, such as performance recording and assisted reproduction, we are succeeding in improving the genetic stock of alpacas in the Peruvian Altiplano. The benefits are spread to the rural communities because finer alpaca fiber in the fleece will generate a higher income for the herdsmen.

From the farm to the customer – our philosophy, our mission, and the business model of our activities. We are committed to research and creation, respecting people’s interaction as well as the welfare of the precious animals. It allows to offer traceable alpaca and RAS certified yarns and stands for the desire to be transparent and closer to the customer.
