Moments to Remember – Why You Should Choose Alpaca Fur This Festive Season

In the fast-paced world of fashion, where trends rise and fall, it’s rare to encounter a timeless product that stands as a testament to timeless artistry. But Lacorine’s Alpaca designs are a gem. Born from Peruvian craftsmanship, the collection finds itself at the intersection of time-honoured tradition and future innovation.

During this season of giving, our team got together to discuss why Lacorine’s gifts will be loved for generations to come. One reason that comes up again and again-the material itself. From our timeless teddies to elegant headbands, each carefully crafted design all have one thing in common: they are made from alpaca fur. In this edition, our writers will say why you should choose alpaca fur-and make it your favourite material this Christmas, and the next.

Unparalleled Warmth

Lacorine understands that true luxury transcends aesthetics. Real elegance knows an elevated look does not mean you have to sacrifice comfort. Alpaca fur is the perfect balance-lightweight yet insulating. Our master craftspeople have blended functionality with style-creating garments that elevate your everyday whilst giving unparalleled warmth.


Renowned for its unmatched softness, even the most sensitive skin can enjoy alpaca’s hypoallergenic, itch-free properties. Whilst sheep’s wool contains coarser fibres which can lead to irritation, high-grade alpaca fur has fewer scales meaning virtually anyone can enjoy luxury design without hurting your skin.

Conscious Luxury

We aim to create with intent, and champion better lives with our products. At every stage of the creative process, we analyse the environmental impact of our creations: our designs are ethically produced and 100% cruelty-free.

What’s more, alpaca wool does not shed, pill or lose its shape. That means when you purchase Lacorine, you help the environment, the alpaca’s and are celebrating the art of slow, sustainable luxury.

However it is worn, alpaca fur bears the art of timeless crafstmanship, and is designed to be loved for years to come. This Christmas, share the spirit of the festive season by gifting an item that is hypoallergenic, warm and kind to your loved ones skin-, from our bestselling alpaca sumac hat, Anabelle capes, shawls, ponchos, timeless teddies and more.
