Smith Rock Alpaca Vest – Field to Fashion
A grand example of field to fashion…it’s what we do, it’s what we love!
Premium American alpaca fiber of all shades is lovingly grown by our friends in the field. Once a year, before the heat of the Summer, the fiber is gently harvested, sorted, scoured and washed. All of the colors are carded, combed and blended together resulting in a beautiful (undyed) heather.
The alpaca fiber is then knit into pile fabric utilizing recycled nylon thread as a binder (think sherpa, only natural fiber). The fabric is trimmed to 3/8″ pile length, rolled, and then it’s off to cut and sew where it is fashionably transformed into vests, jackets and hats for The IY Collection.
This alpaca vest is super soft. You are going to love the feel of it next to your skin. and your skin will love the breathable, thermoregulating, naturally hypoallergic, antimicrobial properties of the natural fiber.
