We know you not only care about wearing something cute, comfortable and fashionable, there’s often more reasons for you to stop and think about why you should choose some brands up the others. And this kind of questions get more frequently when we talk about what kind of winter clothes we should get. We spent our days looking for more information about what kind of wool or fleece we should choose and why. But do not worry anymore. Because today, here, at Tinkuy, we are going to give you some reasons of why you should choose us and our baby alpaca fleece instead other.
Our baby alpaca against other wools Let’s start by this topic. It is true that there is a big variety of wools at the market, some cheaper or more expensive than others. But between all that, our baby alpaca fleece is one of the most wanted at the market. And here are the reasons why. - Alpaca hair is a lightweight, soft, warm and strong fiber. It’s softer, warmer, more durable than sheep fibers and even are cheaper than Mohair wool, which is considered a luxury fiber. - The fleece we use on our clothes are likely to be 100% hypoallergenic because of its natural properties of this fiber. - Each individual strand is hollow, this gives alpaca a tremendous thermal capacity that allows for a breathable fiber with an insulating nature from cool and warm temperatures and so will be when we use this fleece. These are only some of the advantages about this excellent fiber. But there’s more if you make a comparison with sheep or goat wool.
Sheep, goat and alpaca feeds from grass, but do you know that the sheep and goat cause more damage?
They do, their pointy hooves destroy the field where they walk and feed. Also when they eat the grass they eat it up to the root leaving the place where the pass arid and deserted.
With alpacas, on other hand these things don’t happens. They fluffy and softy hooves doesn’t hurt the path they walk and they eat only grass, leaving nature intact.
And if it wasn’t least, you can make what you do with the fleece of one alpaca than you would do with twenty sheep or goats. Making this way a process less stressful for the animals and way cheaper for us.
Animal Harm! We want to be honest with everyone, and in that way there’s some other reasons why you should choose our baby alpaca fleece. Sheep and goats are forced to mate with other breed of their species to get more wool that they would normally get, that’s way that their skin get more sweat and get sick of fly-strike. A disease that is not treated by their farmers, instead of that they mutilate them for save his fleece and let the flies “do their things” That’s not all, when they finally get rid of their farmers, go through a horrible transportation process, where they are caught in little cells where they don’t receive enough food or water and eventually dying.
We know it’s not a nice image, we don’t accept that. That’s why we go for the baby alpaca’s fleece. Let me tell you this way. Alpacas are very reliable animals and can be even treated as a home pet if you have the environment necessarily for his cares. They are shorn once every year and a half or two, and even they enjoy of this. With our 0 harmless process of shorn, they feel fresh and happy again and walks out freely. We are really concerned about the treatment of this animals, and how much they have to go through just for his fibers. That’s why in Tinkuy, we really care. We make every part of the process 100% ecofriendly, not only for the animals but the environment. Our artisans are part of this plan, they enjoy of knit and they are well payed for his worked. We don’t believe in factories, we are a handmade baby alpaca fleece company that is looking to make a statement of awareness and impose a fashionable ecofriendly trend.
