NATURALLY MADE FOR ADVENTURERS
Inspired by our Peruvian heritage, we created an international brand based on nature's most functional fiber: Alpaca Wool. Our designs are made for the world traveller in all climates. Using only the most luxurious wool (18.5 microns), Arms of Andes is single sourced by Peru.
THE HIGH PERFORMANCE FIBER
HOW WE WORK
From the alpaca's wool to the finished item delivered to you, we are involved in every step. We work closely with our yarn producers to assure our wool is pure and of a maximum: 18.5 microns. Our cloth is created with trusted teams and is tested for great durability. And we personally designed our clothes to let you explore freely with perfect coverage for the outdoors.
ULTRALIGHT | HIGH-PERFORMANCE | ECOLOGICAL
PACK LIGHT: With hollow fibers and knitted for travel, our alpaca wool clothes are incredibly light.
MINIMAL WASHING: Anti-bacterial & odor resistant properties allow you to stay clean while re-using your clothes several times without wash.
SOFT & COMFORTABLE: At 18.5 microns, the softness of the wool keeps you cozy and warm.
HIGH FUNCTIONAL FIBER
LOW MOISTURE RETENTION: Alpaca wool retains almost 0% of water. This helps your stay dry when hiking in the mist or rain.
WICKS AWAY SWEAT: Wicks away almost 100% of your sweat. Your body warmth is kept in the hollow fibers of the alpaca that mechanically push away your sweat.
TEMPERATURE REGULATED: Feel warm, but breathable. The unique structure of the fiber regulates temperature so you're not too hot or too cold.
THE ECOLOGICAL ALPACA
FRIENDLY TO THE ENVIRONMENT: Alpacas respect their nature. Their feet are light to the ground and cut the grass with their teeth, allowing new grass to grow.
SHEARING THE WOOL: Peruvian farmers use traditional shearing methods that cause no harm to the alpacas. And they are grazed in the outdoors of the Andes, in their natural environment.
SUSTAINABLE FIBER: Alpaca wool lasts a life-time and is also biodegradable.
