Alpaca Pooch was born in 2008 when I tried to find a sweater for my Cavalier King Charles Spaniel Puppy. I wanted something classic, stylish and good quality but at an affordable price. When I couldn't find anything I liked I put two and two together, after all Concepts of Peru (now known as The Alpaca Wardrobe) have been making Alpaca Knitwear for 'their owners' for over 10 years. So I started work on a small collection that would complement our existing range of accessories.
We have continued to develop the range of quality knitwear and now have a collection of garments for dog and owner that you can both enjoy.
Daniel the Spaniel is 5 now and I couldn't imagine how he would have changed my life and influenced the direction of the business.
Native to the Andes in South America, the Alpaca has a hollow fibre that keeps them warm on cold nights and cool on warm days. The animals are shorne once a year and the fleece is processed in a similar way to wool. It is lanolin free and considered hypoallergenic. Once worn by Inca nobility and Queen Victoria herself it really is a superior fibre that we can now all enjoy.
As The Alpaca Wardrobe we also offer an extensive collection of alpaca knitwear and accessories for you, we really have something for everyone!
