SENTALER has fallen in love with alpaca fibre for its exceptional quality and luxury appeal. The fibre is obtained by sheering alpaca animals, which thrive in the high altitude of the Peruvian Andes. Their hair has developed microscopic air pockets that provide superior thermal insulation, which make SENTALER outerwear warm, lightweight and soft to the touch. Alpaca is a mild tempered, intelligent and beautiful domestic animal, whose fibre is often a main source of income for Peruvian families who raise them in the Andes. While working with alpaca fibre, SENTALER helps those families to sustain in their way of life. SENTALER is committed to crafting of all garments adhering to cruelty free, sustainable and fair-trade practices.
