Soon after starting their farm, Purely Alpaca opened a small store showcasing alpaca products to visitors of their farm. The first web store opened in 2002, and the demand for more products continued to grow. Today they've got a huge collection! It's almost overwhelming.
Since the beginning, Purely Alpaca has offered new features, more customer services, and a wider collection of quality alpaca products, including some awesome winter hats. Look no further for "wearable art" made with luxurious, naturally unique alpaca fiber.

Purely Alpaca is the exclusive distributor for Adventure Required, a Peruvian outreach endeavor which helps the indigenous peoples of Peru to produce attractive alpaca hats themed after great explorers.
The hat I've got - the Kingsley hat - is named after Charles Kingsley. It's available in a variety of sizes and you can wear it folded for a more snug fit, or of course unfolded.
A blessed thing it is for any man or woman to have a friend, one human soul whom we can trust utterly, who knows the best and worst of us, and who loves us in spite of all our faults. — Charles Kingsley
Did you know there are more than 20 natural shades of their fiber? It's soft like cashmere and stronger than wool. Soft and strong is not very common. It's unique in that it's extremely light, yet retains the ability to keep you warm.

Only the best alpaca is used to craft these hats. Each hat is made from 100% baby alpaca wool. From the farms that produce the alpaca fibers to the hands that knit each hat, everyone is treated with the utmost respect - the way things should be.
At the moment there are seven colors available for the Kingsley, and I'm thinking the purple would be a good gift for that special lady in your life. I've got the boring brown, but it's what I like.
With new designers and manufacturers getting into the industry, alpaca clothing and gifts continue to expand. PurelyAlpaca will continue to show the latest interesting products created from the exquisite, naturally unique alpaca fiber.
So who wants a winter hat?! PurelyAlpaca has been gracious enough to offer an alpaca hat from the Adventure Required line to one lucky Giveaway Guy reader, a $38 value.
