Alpaca knit - a natural riding shirt without equal

When purchasing a riding shirt, the first thing that comes to mind may be technical materials. But what if we told you that there is a natural fiber that can be used to make the perfect riding shirt. Royal quality Alpaca wool is an incomparably wonderful and versatile natural fiber that offers several advantages compared to other technical or natural fibers.

Why does Alpaca Royal make a perfect riding shirt?

Heat regulating, dirt and water repellent

Alpaca wool is known for its unique ability to regulate heat. It keeps you warm in cold weather and cool in warm weather. In addition, the undyed and untreated alpaca Royal fiber (< 18 µm) is excellently water repellent and a light drizzle does not wet the garment at all. This makes Royal quality alpaca fiber an ideal choice for riding clothes where you are exposed to different weather conditions. When riding in the cool of the morning or in the middle of a sunny day, you can trust that alpaca wool clothing will keep you comfortable throughout the ride.


Horse riding is a physical sport where the body produces heat and moisture. Alpaca wool is naturally breathable, superior to all other fibers. It allows air to circulate and moisture to evaporate. This keeps your skin dry and comfortable, even if you sweat while riding. Alpaca wool also does not absorb odors, it is hypoallergenic and antibacterial.

Light and durable

High-quality Royal Alpaca wool is a very warm material, it is light and soft and does not itch even sensitive skin. This makes it a pleasant choice for riding clothes. The Royal alpaca shirt from Ruukki's spinning mill is durable, long-lasting and retains its appearance for an exceptionally long time.

Natural riding shirt

If you value ecological options, Alpaca wool is your choice. Alpacas are animals bred for wool production that live in the mountains of Peru. As a camel animal, the alpaca uses little water and its wool clothing rarely needs washing. When grazing, alpaca does not consume the soil but promotes biodiversity. Our Alpaca Royal products are undyed and no chemicals have been used in their production. Alpaca Royal knits are so-called 24/7 clothes for living, outdoor activities and business wear, which makes the alpaca shirt an environmentally friendly option for riding as well.

Stylish appearance

Functionality above all else, but the riding shirt must also be stylish. Alpaca Royal fiber is not only a functional material, it also looks great. It provides a natural shine and softness, which makes clothes look elegant and sophisticated. So you can look good while enjoying the benefits of alpaca wool while riding.
