Alpakka Gloves - Warmth and comfort for the hands

Are your fingers always cold? Try alpaca mittens and fall in love!

Discover alpaca mittens, which combine incredible softness and first-class warmth. These mittens are made of high-quality alpaca wool, known for its excellent thermal properties and breathability.

The most important qualities:

  • 100% Baby Alpaca: 100% high quality natural product that adapts to the user's hands.
  • Luxurious softness: High-quality alpaca wool is softer than sheep's wool, offering a pleasant feeling on the skin.
  • Thermal insulation: Keep your hands warm even in the coldest weather, because alpaca wool provides excellent thermal insulation.
  • Breathable and light: Untreated Alpaca wool is light and breathable and does not irritate the skin, even during long use.
  • Water and dirt resistance: Untreated Alpaca wool repels water and dirt.
  • Hypoallergenic: Perfect for sensitive skin, because alpaca wool does not contain lanolin, which causes an allergic reaction in sheep's wool.
  • Durable and natural: High-quality wool is naturally durable and environmentally friendly.
  • Undyed and untreated: The mittens are only available in natural alpaca colors, so the wool has retained all of its aforementioned properties.
  • Onesize: Suitable for people who use size 7-9 gloves.

Alpaca mittens are perfect companions in the cold of winter, for outdoor activities, for the city, or for example as a stylish addition to a fashionable outfit. They are also perfect as a gift for loved ones who appreciate high-quality and practical accessories.

The mittens are made in Peru from Peruvian threads. By choosing these fingers, you support indigenous alpaca farming and alpacas' well-being.

Genuinely nice

Our high-quality interior decoration products are made from 100% Baby Alpaca alpaca fiber. This 22 micron fiber enables the production of thin, uniform quality yarn.

The finer the alpaca fiber is, the more comfortable it feels against the skin. The fiber is so fine that you can put the product directly against the skin of a newborn baby, hence the name Baby Alpaca.

Alpaca fiber is a fat-free, hollow fiber with particularly good heat regulation ability. That's why alpaca knits and woven alpaca fabrics are warm, breathable and light. Alpaca fiber repels water and dirt, and odors do not stick to it.

No dyes are used in our products. We rely on nature's own color chart, and this way the finished sweater retains all its excellent properties typical of alpaca fiber.

You get genuine natural products from us. All the colors we use are natural shades of alpaca wool. Even the black thread is completely undyed.

Undyed, hypoallergenic and antibacterial fiber is also suitable for people with sensitive skin and allergy sufferers.

Classic Nordic Design

Our interior products are designed and manufactured in Finland.

Our goal is to bring quality and everyday luxury into the lives of as many people as possible. Neatly finished and high-quality interior products not only feel wonderful, but also look good.

We strive to create products that remain relevant year after year. We don't have seasonal products. All our products will remain in the collection as long as there is enough demand.

Responsible production

We import the alpaca yarns used in our products from Peru. The spinning mill Michell Group, our partner, guarantees ethical alpaca breeding. All breeders who supply Michell Group with alpaca fiber have been awarded the RAS label (Responsible Alpaca Standard).

Because the dyeing process is omitted, only little water is used in production and, apart from detergent, no chemicals at all. In addition, we strive to use environmentally friendly options in all product details.

Easy to maintain: Brushing and wiping the stain.

If necessary, hand wash with wool detergent in lukewarm water or with the hand wash program of the washing machine at +30°C.

Remember that we have a repair service. In case of damage, send your product for repair. This is how we together increase the lifespan of products and save nature.

When your product is completely worn out, we accept it as material to be processed again.

All orders are sent within 1-6 weekdays from the date of order, except during our holiday/ vacation time.

Handling and postage is 10 € in Finland (free >180 €), 30 € in Europe.

The subscriber has a 14-day exchange and return right. The right to exchange and return applies to unused and salable products in their original packaging.

The return of the order must be notified in advance using the return form or by email to posti@ruukinkehraamo.fi .

1. Why don't we have any colorful knit wear?

Ruukkin Kehräämö's Alpaca Royal fiber is undyed. Each color is the true color of the original wool producing animal. Altogether, there are 22 basic colors of alpacas. This guarantees a wide and stunningly beautiful color palette.

Non-dyeing is an advantage of fiber, yarn and, above all, the finished knit. Harsh chemical processes; bleaching, dyeing, post-treatments and washing wear down the fibers and break their surface structure. The properties of the natural, minimally processed alpaca fiber are transferred directly to the garment. That's why Ruukkin Kehräämö's knitwear is not dyed.

When the knit reaches the end of its life cycle, the fiber continues its life. Undyed, non-chemically treated alpaca fiber is 100% biodegradable. Knitwear can also be torn back into fibers and recycled for reuse.

2. Why do our products have a delivery fee?

We want you not to make a hasty purchase decision, but to be sure of your choice when ordering the product. In Finland, up to 50% of e-commerce orders are returned. Postage has been found to significantly reduce the number of returns.

On average, the largest emissions of clothes sold in an online store come from the product itself (~83%), but transportation produces 14% of the emissions. If the product is returned, the transport emissions are doubled.

So we want to act responsibly both towards our customers and the environment. When you buy less, carefully and with better quality, the environment and your wallet will thank you.

3. Why don't we have discount campaigns?

We do not support fast fashion and quick purchase decisions. FOMO (Fear of missing out) is a commonly used method in marketing to get a customer to buy products that they don't necessarily need.

By limiting the offer to a certain time, consumers are tempted to make rash purchase decisions. Instead, we want you to be satisfied with your purchases from us and to use our products for a long time. You can always count on us to have the product at the same price, whether you make your purchase on Black Friday or a normal Sunday morning.

3. How can we guarantee that the yarn coming from Peru is responsibly produced?

In the mountains of Peru, alpaca breeding is the main livelihood. Up to 85% of the native population's income comes from selling alpaca wool. By buying wool from certain farms, we can ensure that the owner of the farm receives reasonable compensation for his work. Alpacas play an important role in breaking the cycle of poverty.

Ruukkin Kehräämö only uses high-quality and ethically produced, RAS-marked (Responsible Alpaca Standard) alpaca wool. Breeders belonging to Peruvian indigenous peoples tend their small herds with respect for nature. The organization we support, Quechua Benefit , helps the indigenous population to take care of the well-being of both the alpacas and their families.

For each batch of yarn that arrives at Ruukki Kehräämö, the fibers are collected separately from local small farms. Every fiber can be traced back to the premises and even to the animal. Growers get double the price for Alpaca Royal fiber compared to coarser fibers.

4. How can we guarantee that neither the angora rabbits nor the alpacas suffer during the wool picking?

Alpaca and angora rabbit are wool producing animals. They have been bred to produce wool, like merino sheep. Not shearing a wool-producing animal is harmful to the animal, because the wool does not stop growing at a certain length, but long and tangled wool makes it difficult for the animal to move and worsens hygiene.

We buy wool from angora rabbits only from domestic farms, where the spinning takes place under the conditions of the animals and stress-free. You can watch our partner Villiniity's coiling video and get to know angora rabbits in our blog post .

The Alpaca wool we use for our yarns comes mainly from domestic farms. We buy the black alpaca fiber from the Dutch Tienda Molino alpaca farm .

Alpaca wool must be collected with professional skill and as stress-free as possible for the alpaca and as gently as possible. Australian professional Chris Williams arrives in Finland in the spring and rolls the alpacas quickly and painlessly.
