All-Paca™ Fleece Gaiter

All-Paca™ Fleece Gaiters are perfect for cold weather activities and snow sports and made to take on whatever Nature has to dish out.  The All-Paca™ Fleece Gaiter is made from 100% Alpaca Fiber. It's also super warm, breathable, and packable - and crushes cold weather and high elevations. The 2-layer knit structure and fiber properties allow perspiration to easily escape while retaining its amazing insulating properties without letting the snow soak in.  It's also great for sitting in a tree stand or a duck blind.  If you keep your neck warm, you are always cozy.

Alpaca Fiber doesn’t absorb much moisture, and it dries really quickly. Our fleece is not at all thick or bulky, and is warmer than other types of fleece that are much bulkier. Most importantly, Alpaca insulates even when its wet. Down and synthetics will not insulate when wet. Alpaca is truly one of Nature’s high performance fibers, and it is very soft and comfortable to wear.

For temps above 40 degrees, we would recommend our Tubular "Neck Pipes", and for really cold weather, the fleece gaiter is the better choice. You'll be surprised how warm the fleece gaiter is in really cold weather.

We typically ship orders within a week from date of purchase to provide time for processing and packaging as we fulfill and package every order by hand. If we have an influx of orders (i.e. when we drop new inventory), it may take up to two weeks for shipment of items.

Sizing & Fit
  • Our All-Paca™ Ski Gaiter is one size fits most & has a top opening that is approximately 9 1/2” in diameter (19” circumference).

  • They are made to fit comfortably in order to let the Alpaca fiber do its work. The Ski Gaiters are designed so that they can be worn over over a pull-over or turtle neck, and can also be tucked into a pull-over.

Care
  • You don’t need to wash this garment often. Even if you are active and sweating in it, just air it out. Alpaca does not retain odors and doesn’t support bacterial growth. Since it is an animal fiber, it is susceptible to moth damage, so you will want to store it so that moths can’t get to it just like you would with wool. However, washing will not harm your gaiter.

  • Use a small to medium load, cold water, light cycle (regular cycle is OK), and wash with other performance fabrics & socks. We recommend to NOT wash in large loads, or with heavy fabrics like jeans/towels

  • Use any normal detergent. Do not use “washing Soda”, Chlorine OR Peroxide bleaches, or “Oxygen Cleaners”

  • Tumble dry your garment on low to medium-low heat in a small load with other similar items - it will only take approximately 10-15 minutes to dry. Medium to high heat, or drying in large loads with jeans/towels is not recommended.

  • The Fleece products will not exhibit much shrinkage.

  • When you receive your garment it may feel a little flat or stiff from shipping and being folded. If so, you can turn your garment inside-out and put it in your dryer with no heat (i.e., the Fluff Cycle) with 3 or 4 wool dryer balls and tumble for 15-20 minutes. That will fluff-up your garment.

  • If you are backpacking or traveling, and need to wash this garment for any reason, and do not have access to regular detergents:

    1. Backpacking: Just rinse with stream water, let air dry, do not use detergent, follow Leave No Trace Principles

    2. Traveling: you can use shampoo, mild liquid dish/hand detergent (just a drop or two) , rinse in a sink, wring out, hang dry or lay it on a towel to dry

Specifications

Construction

  • Double-Layered Fleece - All-Paca Ski Gaiters are constructed with two layers of our unique fleece to keep your neck and face toasty when the winds are howling. 

  • The Trail Seam™ - The unique 100% Alpaca fiber fabric deserved a seam that would be worthy of Adventure. We designed our Trail Seam™ for tremendous toughness and durability, so you can be confident the gear will perform under extreme stress and prolonged usage.  Our hoodies and shirts have been thousands of miles and experienced millions and millions of rubs under backpack straps - and our Trail Seam™ has consistently met those stringent demands.

  • Weft Knit - 100% Alpaca fiber is knitted into a unique fabric that provides exceptional performance.  Our special knit structure resists “running” - so if you poke a hole in it while you are in the backcountry, the hole may get slightly larger over time, but you don’t have to worry about the hole turning in to a long “run” as experienced in many lightweight knits.

Details

  • Our lightweight All-Paca™ line is made from 100% Alpaca yarn spun to our specifications.

  • We design, knit and sew our fabric & garments in our own North Carolina, USA facility utilizing our Patent Pending process. 

  • Our fabrics are tested at various Southeastern USA testing labs that utilize standard ASTM Test Methods.

  • We import our custom-spun yarn from our trusted partners in Peru - made to our exacting specifications.  We require our vendors to hold Fair Trade, Responsible Alpaca, and OEKO-TEX® Standard 100 certifications.

  • Since we have extensive Textile Manufacturing expertise, we deal directly with manufacturers - never brokers.

Made in the USA

Open tab

While our Alpaca fiber is responsibly sourced from a yarn producer in Peru, our Alpaca fabric and garments are entirely created in the United States. By producing the fabric in our own facility in Kings Mountain, we are able to:

  • Have better oversight of the manufacturing process
  • Ensure the production of a higher quality garment
  • Respond to technical challenges more efficiently
  • Develop innovative materials and new garments more quickly
  • Create American jobs in the future
  • Ensure employees have a safe working environment
  • Ensure employees are paid fair wages

Our 100% Cotton Tees are constructed in Honduras, then garment dyed in the US, and printed in the US.
