nature's highest performing fiber
NATURALLY MADE FOR ADVENTURERS
Inspired by our Peruvian heritage, we created an international brand based on nature's most functional fiber: Alpaca Wool. Our designs are made for the world traveller in all climates. Using only the most luxurious wool (18.5 microns), Arms of Andes is single sourced by Peru.
We won the brandnew selection from ISPO!
The jury of ISPO Brandnew, the largest Outdoor Industry Trade Show event, was impressed by our Alpaca Wool outdoor apparel. We were selected based on our sustainable outdoor gear and transparency. They have chosen us as one of the Selected Brand in the category: Outdoor Adventure out of more than 400 submissions.
MADE BY PERU | FUNCTIONAL | SUSTAINABLE
FROM THE ANDES: Our luxurious wool is given by the alpacas found in the Peruvian Andes. With close relationships with many farmers, we can trace back to the farm where our wool is from.
ONLY MADE IN PERU: From the alpaca to the finished clothes, everything is done in Peru. Having presence there, we have control of traceability and quality.
PERU TO THE WORLD: We are also in USA and the Netherlands.
YOUR CLOTHES STAY DRY: Our 100% alpaca wool gear absorbs close to 0% of moisture. Your clothes stay dry while hiking the misty outdoors.
YOU STAY DRY: The alpaca fibers wick away almost 100% of your sweat. Your body warmth is trapped in the hollow fibers that mechanically push away your sweat.
TEMPERATURE REGULATED: Feel warm, but breathable. The unique structure of the fiber regulates temperature so you're warm when it's cold and cool when it's hot.
FRIENDLY TO THE ENVIRONMENT: Alpacas respect their nature. Their feet are gentle to the ground. When eating, their teeth cut the grass, allowing new grass to grow.
SHEARING THE WOOL: Peruvian farmers use traditional shearing methods that cause no harm to the alpacas. They graze in the Andean outdoors, in their natural environment.
SUSTAINABLE FIBER: Alpaca wool lasts a life-time and is also biodegradable.
