Sand 100% Alpaca wool hat – Soft rib knit hat, optional turn up at hem
OBG products are made from 100% Alpaca wool and are 100% natural in colour. Our fluffy Alpaca friends live on our family run farm in our very own back garden.
Our Herd of Alpaca’s have become a huge part of what we love and are known for. Not only are these animals addictively cute but the producers of our main products. Alpaca Fleece has become more and more popular for wool lovers. Due to its more sustainable nature than cashmere Alpaca wool has a lot of benefits. As soft as cashmere the wool from alpacas is more sustainable as we can get a lot more wool per animal than any cashmere goat would produce.
“Alpaca fibres are also incredibly soft and mostly hypoallergenic; more durable and less likely to pill than cashmere; and warmer, yet lighter, than traditional wool”
