Alqo Wasi – Peruvian Dogwear

ALQO WASI means “Dog Home in Quechua the language of the Incas.

Alqo Wasi is devoted to creating timeless and authentic pieces made of luxurious alpaca fibre blends.

Alpaca is one of the world’s most luxurious fabrics, “it” is a jewel among all other synthetic fibres and harsh materials found in our everyday lives. The world of high fashion recognizes alpaca for its natural attributes:

  • Natural thermostat: Alpaca fiber traps body heat in cooler temperatures and releases it in warmer ones.
  • Pilling: The silky fiber and long hairs of alpaca wool allow less pilling compared to other fibers.
  • Animal-friendly: Alpaca is not harmed during the shearing process.
  • Softness (hand): Alpaca fiber is silky, soft, supple, and smooth. It is prized for its unique velvety feel and luxurious handle. Alpaca is as soft as cashmere, warmer, and stronger than lambs’ wool.
  • Elasticity and Resistance: Alpaca fiber is solid, resilient, and very elastic, making it possible to compare it with wool and other animal fibers.
  • Lanolin-free: Lanolin is grease found in most sheep’s wool that protects the fiber, imparts a “unique” odor, and is the cause of wool allergies. “Alpaca” fiber does not itch, and it is hypoallergenic.
  • Does not preserve humidity.
