Blankets are a cozy accessory that helps to protect us from low temperatures in autumn and winter. Undoubtedly, they are objects that should not be missing in the home, since you can use it in bed or on the sofa. Because of its versatility you can take it even if you go on a trip to very cold places. A peruvian alpaca blanket not only provides warmth, but it is so soft that you won’t want to take it off. Learn more about its characteristics below. 

Alpaca fiber: Characteristics

At Colca Fabric we manufacture our products with excellent quality and 100% natural fibers. The peruvian alpaca blanket is one of the finest and most luxurious in the world, because it has characteristics that make it one of the best options. 

Thermal properties

One of its greatest characteristics is that it has thermal properties. Thanks to this quality, it allows that, in slightly higher temperatures, the heat is not strong and feels cool; and when it is cold, it retains body heat making the interior warm. This is why alpaca fiber behaves as a thermal insulator, making it possible to use it in different weather conditions. 

Elasticity and resistance

A Peruvian alpaca blanket has good elasticity and resistance. When compared to other animal fibers such as sheep wool, we can say that it is much more resistant. Its elaboration process allows that not so many changes are made in its composition, so its naturalness is not affected and provides the best of its qualities.



It is no secret that Peruvian alpaca wool has a structure that makes it very soft to the touch. The breeding of this Andean animal is done in its natural habitat, but having a control and above all, care to make sure that since they are born they can have the best conditions. This makes their hair grow in a normal way and can be used when they reach adulthood. It is here that its first cut is the softest for the elaboration of blankets, ponchos, gloves, etc. 


It is one of the points that people with allergies to animal hair must take into account. The alpaca fiber is hypoallergenic, that is to say, if you are a person who suffers from allergies when in contact with other wools such as sheep’s wool, you should stop worrying. By using alpaca fiber, those allergies will be a thing of the past. 


Alpaca fiber has more than twenty natural colors, so it does not need to be dyed. The shades range from white, gray, brown and even black. Of course, it can also be made in other colors using natural dyes. That is why it is considered one of the finest in the world.
