Alpaca is Hypoallergenic
Alpaca fiber's porous nature is naturally dry and clean which prevents dust mites and other allergens from settling in.Alpaca is Environmentally FriendlyThe shorn animals are raised in a pesticide free environment and their wool is a renewable resource. No chemicals, dyes or bleaches are used when the wool is processed. The pillows are encased with 100% organic cotton fabric so the whole product is 100% biodegradable at the end of its long life. Alpaca fiber loves fresh air and will re-loft when put outside for a few hours.
People who sleep with wool get a longer, more restful sleep
