Yampaca - Alpaca Farming for the Better Good
Did you know that 15 million tons of textiles end up in landfills each year? This averages out to be 65 pounds of wasted clothes for every American.
Hi, my name is Craig, I’m one of the founders here at Yampaca.
By creating sustainable, environmentally friendly clothes we’re able cut down the impact that your clothes make.
By overseeing these three steps in the creation process, I'm able to ensure that your clothes are leaving the smallest environmental footprint.
- Raising the alpacas - Using pesticide free grass reduces the chemical impact on the earth and on the alpacas.
- Careful crafting - By putting the least amount of added materials (polyester, vinyl, acrylic, etc.) to our alpaca wool, we're able to reduce the time it takes for your clothes to decompose once in the earth form 20 years down to 1 year!
- Delivery to your doorstep - By not shipping our clothes overnight or 2 day shipping we're able to reduce the amount of jet fuel wasted. We still want our shipping to be convenient for you so we offer FREE shipping on everything!
But this wasn’t enough...
Your apparel should be unique and stand out, right? Because you KNOW exactly where your clothes came from (our farm) and you know the people that handcrafted it, the clothes you buy from Yampaca have a story to tell, making them unique.
Your clothes don't stop there though! You should be able to wear your clothes no matter what you’re doing! This is why we chose to make your clothes out of alpaca.
Because alpaca wool doesn't hold sweat or odor, is 3X warmer than wool and is water resistant, you're able to wear your clothes no matter what you're doing.
You can wear your alpaca clothes out hiking, camping, skiing and then out with your friends with no worries and still look good.
On top of this, we care about you and your purchase. So, if you’re not 100% satisfied we’ll refund your order completely and even take care of the cost of your return. Don’t worry - we’ll recycle it!
We care about making the earth a better place so much that we took the worry out of shipping with our free shipping policy.
