Alpaca and llama are species from the camel family. The soft, silk-like hairs of these mystical animals make them very valuable. Their natural environment is in the Andean high plane of South America. Due to the variations in temperature, varying from 25°C to +18°C, the alpaca and llama have developed a coat in which every hair has an air pocket that retains heat when the weather is cold, and keeps cool when the weather is warm. Their wool is warmer and more durable than sheep's wool and is as silky as cashmere. These are perfect fabrics for children. they insulate, absorb moisture, breathe and are silky soft. Esencia uses these fabrics because of their natural protective quality.
