Our alpacas are the cashmere of alpacas. Superfine, incredibly soft and wearable, our alpaca fiber comes from animals raised at elevations of over 10,000 feet in the Andes Mountains.

Alpaca yarn is naturally hypoallergenic, free of lanolin or dander, water and fire resistant. Galler’s
Peruvian Tweed consists of two softly spun strands of prime alpaca spiral bound with a third strand more tightly spun; the strands can be all the same color or in two or three shades. The overall effect once knitted is of a sophisticated and understated tweed. Peruvian Tweed is available in a range of 16 luscious natural tones, which can be used together or alone.
Although it knits up at a worsted weight, it has high loft and drape, and makes splendid shawls and scarves as well as light sweaters.
