Don’t let winter leave you in the cold. Add color, style and warmth to your winter apparel. Sirius Alpacas’ women’s alpaca hats are hand made in Peru. Fully lined, they provide a double barrier against the cold with a knit outer shell of a blend of alpaca yarn. Their solid-color rim has striking embroidered floral details in complimentary colors (see photos). The hat’s main body is knit in two colors in a subtle pattern. Finished with two braided tassels off the crown, these alpaca hats look great for serious outdoor enthusiasts or for ladies who simply want to be comfortable during winter trips around town.
Because they are knit from a blend of alpaca and acrylic, these hats are durable and can handle snowflakes, rain and hand washing. Made to last, they provide years of comfort and warmth, not to mention colorful style.

Alpaca fiber is prized for its remarkably soft texture, light weight and warmth. A natural fiber that keeps the best qualities of wool, alpaca has far less prickle factor because each strand of baby and superfine fiber has far fewer microscopic barbs than sheep and lambs’ wool. Similar to cashmere premium-fiber baby alpaca can be worn against the skin and has a silky smoothness. Because alpacas do not secrete lanolin as sheep do, most people can wear alpaca without allergic reactions.
Sirius Alpacas is a family farm in Chardon, Ohio that raises and boards alpacas for fun, therapy and profit. The farm uses its fleeces in the production of high-quality yarns and felted goods. Sirius Alpacas also imports fair-trade Andean items from Peru and Bolivia, offering the style and culture of South American goods while helping the farmers, artists and craftsmen of that region.
