Jorge Priori seeks to preserve a tradition that began during the Inca empire, when alpaca fiber was so highly treasured it was reserved for royalty. 'Our clothes and blankets are created with the combed technique which uses threads of different length and width, to recreate the type of weave the Incas favored.' Alpaca is considered a luxury fiber because it is as soft as cashmere and has the luster of silk; its up to five times warmer than sheep's wool.What is Worldstock?The handcrafted touch of artisan skill creates variations in color, size and design.
