The word "tweed" conjures up images of wool. However, this tweed is made of alpaca hair and uses natural colored alpaca, one of MARKAWARE's most popular autumn/winter materials.
Natural alpaca hair from Peru has a smooth texture, beautiful luster, and excellent heat retention properties. These three intertwined shades in the tweed are not created by dyeing, but are all natural colors.
The reason for not dyeing is to take advantage of this natural beauty and texture, as well as environmental considerations.
This fall, the CAR COAT and the work-style LOGGER JACKET are made from this fabric. Both exude a charm that makes you feel as if you have found a bargain in vintage clothing.
