The pieces made for this collection have been made with fiber whose thickness is around sixteen microns, hence its name, which makes them the finest modern industrial alpaca textiles in the world. The fiber comes from an exceptional selection done among the finalists of the “Quintal del Inca” fiber contest organized by PACOMARCA in which some of the best Peruvian alpaca breeders participate. Participants receive, without middleman, the best market price for this fiber. Alpaca 16 has unique characteristics due to its exceptional fineness and it is sold exclusively at present as part of KUNA's Luxury Collection.
