All-Paca™ Toboggan

Our Toboggan is the newest addition to our All-Paca™ headwear lineup, crafted from 100% Alpaca micro-fleece. We use two layers of the micro fleece to make this warmer than our standard beanie while not sacrificing breathability. The Toboggan is taller and a little wider than our regular beanie, allowing you to customize the fit with a roll-up. It is slightly less stretchy than our beanie, making it the perfect fit for people with larger heads or a lot of hair. At only 2 ounces, it's lightweight and highly packable. And it can take whatever weather you throw at it.

Alpaca Fiber boasts superior moisture-wicking capabilities and a fast-drying rate. Our lightweight fleece outperforms bulkier counterparts for warmth, and is even capable of insulating when wet, unlike down and synthetic products. An excellent choice among natural fibers, Alpaca offers a snug, comfortable fit as well.

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
  • One-Size-Fits-Most Toboggans should fit adults up to a hat size of 7 1/2 (European size of 59-60).

  • Generally looser than the All-Paca Beanie, can be worn with rolled or non-rolled cuff

  • The All-Paca fabric is very stretchy and will fit a range of head sizes.

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 beanie.

  • 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”

  • Lay Flat for the first 3 washings, then you can tumble dry your garment on low heat in a small load with other similar items - it will only take approximately 8-10 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

  • 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.

  • Lightweight - 2 oz! Ensures this is a piece of gear you'll never hesitate to throw in your pack.

Details

  • Our lightweight All-Paca™ line of products (Fleece & Micro Fleece), are all made from 100% Alpaca yarn spun to our specifications.  Our lightweight 8020™ line of products  are made from our custom blend of 80% Alpaca / 20% TENCEL™.

  • We design & produce our products in our own Kings Mountain North Carolina Facility. 

  • 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

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.
