ALPACA LOVE STORY Part II

Let’s talk about the hard skills of this beautiful wool. Luxury alpaca fibers are fine, lightweight and silky, much like cashmere, but with greater strength and durability. The wool wicks away moisture, keeping the body dry when you sweat and retaining the beautiful shape of your knitwear. Your alpaca knitwear will last longer than most any other luxury fiber, including other wools, cashmere, and silk, making it a heirloom that can be passed through generations.

The animals live through burning sun in the day and freezing conditions at night. Their lifestyle is made possible due to the extremely thermostatic quality of their fur. With just a thin layer of the fine wool, alpaca garments will keep you incredibly warm when it's cold, and release heat when you are hot– great for seasonless dressing.

Alpacas do not produce lanolin, which attracts dust and dirt, so your garments will require less washing and be suitable for sensitive skin or those prone to allergies. 

Lots of words about Alpaca, so the Ricarda Sweater will have to speak for herself: we LOVE this beautiful college-sweater-turned-investment-piece addition to our collection (even if we are way beyond college) …

Honesty

Cashmere is a love story. It starts in Mongolia’s
Gobi desert, where local herdsmen breed softies called
the Capra Hircus Laniger, the goats that produce the
world‘s fluffiest and most valuable cashmere fleece. The fleece is spun in Italy by Cariaggi Lanificio. With decades of experience and a heritage of acting responsibly and sustainably, Cariaggi is known as the most prestigious and trusted spinning mill in the world. The raw cashmere is hand-picked for utmost quality and treated by loving hands to a selection of exceptional yarns, lighter, softer and more luxurious than anything else.

Antonia Zander is an ode to mindful luxury. Since our beginnings some decades ago, it has been the company ethics – and practice – to worship the finest in yarns and fabrics – that cause the least damage to this planet. This wouldn’t be possible without our longstanding partners, all pulling together. With a shared mission: the highest standards of workers’ & animals’ rights, safety and environmental protection. You’re welcome anytime to ask us anything about the manufacturing process and the elements we use.

This piece is made of the finest in natural materials. Please treat it right and be demure when it comes to the instructions on the garment label – they're crucial for the lifetime of this beautiful luxury piece! Contrary to what you might have heard so far, it's ok to wash cashmere at home. Here's how to do it right.
