The characteristics of the alpaca poncho
Alpaca wool is renowned for its high quality fiber, it does not felts and does not cause allergies, as it is lanolin-free. The very warm and precious alpaca wool is obtained from the shearing of the alpaca, an animal that is still raised, in full freedom, in its place of origin: in Peru, on the Andes plateau. Alpaca wool is used to weave ponchos, sweaters, cardigans, hats, scarves, gloves, socks and blankets.
The other characteristic of the Peruvian poncho is the typical ethnic style
The Peruvian poncho has its roots in the Inca textile tradition, a traditionally very colorful garment which, revised by the LaMamita stylists, is now available in natural colors such as black, brown, white or in colors of vegetable origin. The vegetable colors give the pleasure of wearing a colorful but sober poncho.
