This is the bomber jacket made with genuine baby alpaca fleece, renowned for its soft hand and cozy warmth. Five times warmer than sheep’s wool and more luxurious than cashmere, the fine fleece of the Peruvian Alpaca is one of the world’s most sought-after natural fibers. Hand-shorn once per year from a young animal’s belly and neck, Alpaca’s baby-soft, velvety hand is the product of the fibers’ incredibly fineness—22 1/2 microns wide versus 26 for wool. Their hollow fibers act as a natural insulator by trapping warm air against the body, making it 30% warmer than wool—one of the chief reasons it is preferred by Peruvians living 11,000’ above seas level in the Andes’ long, harsh winters. With a ribbed neck, cuffs, and waist that help lock out chills while giving the jacket a classic bomber look, it is lined with 100% polyester colored to match the exterior. Unzipping the front reveals a magnetic snap pocket on the lower right for a cell phone while the upper left has a buttoned pocket. Dry Clean. Imported. Tan. Men’s size L. (1 lb.)
