Bella Alpaca Hat
There are no drab or dreary days when your head is covered in this celebration of colour and design; made with one of the highest performing technical fibres on the planet. Don’t be fooled by the thinner weave of this piece - it’ll keep your noggin toasty warm.
Peruvian alpaca is a natural, technical fiber with remarkable thermal properties - allowing air circulation on warm days (prevents sweating), and heat insulation on cool days (contains heat). This hat features a composition of solely baby-alpaca, which means that it’s made with fleece from the very first sheer of an alpaca.
Alpacas are shorn once per year, and the hair from the first sheer of an alpaca is remarkably soft. This is an ethical and humane process; no animals are ever harmed for Pokoloko products. They’ve woven this luxury fibre into a timeless design, with colours that complement your outerwear.
As a bonus, alpaca is one of the Earth's most sustainable fibers to make, because alpacas and alpaca fiber harvesting have a very low environmental impact. A seasonal staple for your wardrobe, great for the active enthusiast or for cooler weather wanderings.
