Sizing & Fit
  • Size regular is “one size fits most”

  • Length: 16.75"

  • Width, flat: 9.5"

  • Circumference: 19"

    Care
    • You don’t need to wash this garment often. Even if you are active and sweating in it, just hang it up. 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.

    • Turn your All-Paca™ Knit Gaiter inside-out (this is key).

    • Use a small load, cold water, light or gentle cycle, and wash with other performance fabrics. 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

    • After the first 3-5 washes, you can tumble dry - but be sure to tumble on low heat in a small load with other similar items - it will only take approximately 10-12 minutes to dry. Medium to high heat is not recommended.

    • After 3-5 washes, you will notice a little shrinkage in the length, and we have allowed for this in our patterns. Also, you will notice very fine “nap” on the fabric, and this improves the comfort and performance of the 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 - Hotel, Hostel, etc. : 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 - Ensures this is a piece of gear you'll never hesitate to throw in your pack.

    Details

    • Our lightweight Hoodies, Shirts, Beanies, and Gaiters are all 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

    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.
