We hand make all Whispirit alpaca fabrics right here on our alpaca ranch from animals we raise here, too. All fabrics are made by a needlefelting process, during which we combine washed and carded natural alpaca (75-80%) and merino wool (20-25%) into a unique and lovely textile. Most of our fabrics are handfelted into a very sheer silk (Silpaca) or cotton (Copaca) gauze. We also add embellishments of silk, wool, and other natural products to create the looks we like.
