Sizing & Fit

Womens All-Paca Shirt Sizing Chart

Width measurements are made by laying the shirts/hoodies face-down flat on a table and measuring the width in inches from armpit to armpit. The bust measurement is the circumference around your torso, under your armpits. To find the size that will fit you best, we suggest to get one of your garments that fits you well, and measure it as described above, then choose the size that most closely matches.

  • The women’s cut is slightly shaped.  The bust and hip measurements are roughly the same, and the waist is slightly narrower.

  • Since Alpaca is a natural fiber with variability, weights can fluctuate from lot to lot. The weight of the Women’s All-Paca™ shirts ranges from 4 - 6 ounces, depending on size.

  • The fabric is very stretchy, so there can be some measurement fluctuations depending on how the fabric is laid out and measured.

  • These garments are generally sized for a normal fit, and not a compression fit. If a more athletic fit is needed, you can go a size down.

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 orders and doesn’t support bacterial growth. Since it is an animal fiber, you will want to store it so that moths can’t get to it just like you would with wool. But - washing will not harm your shirt.

  • Turn your All-Paca Shirt 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”.

  • Air dry by hanging or laying flat the first 3-5 washes. The Alpaca doesn’t have much moisture left in it after the spin cycle, and will dry quickly.

  • After the first 3-5 washes, you can tumble dry your shirt - 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 Principals

    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 shirt you'll never hesitate to throw in your pack.
  • “Regular Fit” Style - Not too snug and not too loose. It looks great and allows for a full range of motion. Natural fibers perform at their optimal level when allowed a little room to breathe.
  • Longer tail - Provides coverage and allows for free movement.

Made in the USA

Over the past 30 years, we’ve watched apparel-manufacturing leave the United States. Now, with Appalachian Gear Company, we’re in a position to do something about it.

While the fiber is responsibly sourced from a yarn producer in Peru, the actual All-Paca fabric and garment is entirely created in the United States. By producing the fabric in our own facility in Charlotte, 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
