Alpacas of Montana: Who We Are and What that Means

We've had some people confuse us with other brands and we want to reiterate that our company and brand is Alpacas of Montana and we are in no way affiliated with Alpaca Land at Sentinel Ranch or any other Alpaca clothing or retail company. 

So what sets us apart?

We never ever eat our animals. Our animals are our family and they are treated as such. 

We make every yarn and fabric from scratch that we use in our products. Our Owner, James Budd, is the mastermind behind every single product, yarn and fabric that we create. We don’t wholesale from already created products -- everything we sell is created uniquely by us and for Alpacas of Montana. 

Our farm is Predator-Friendly and committed to ethical and environmental best practices. This means that some of our priorities include: paying all of our employees living wages, working with Indigenous populations whenever we can, working within our community to provide jobs within our hometown, being inclusive of all people no matter their race, sexual or gender identity, promoting diversity and inclusion, offering equal opportunities to be employed within Alpacas of Montana and being the best stewards to the earth that we can.

What is the definition of Superwash?

Some clothing lines of wool are now being promoted as “superwashed” for next-to-skin capabilities by removing the wool’s lanolin and barbs.  According to Textile Chemicals: Environmental Data and Facts, the superwashed wool is treated with synthetic resins (polyamide / epichlorohydrine or polyurethane), a method that can include such chemicals as chlorine and hypochlorous acid, sulphuric acid, sodium hypochlorite, alkali metal salts of dichloroisocyanuric acid (DCCA) and an acid-stable wetting agent. The chlorination process for wool has lead to enormous environmental problems.

Top fashion companies across the industry all drew the same conclusion after a bevy of recent studies. Our fleeces, athletic wear and leggings release micro-plastic fibers when washed, and these micro-plastics, which are too small to filter out of the wash, end up in the ocean being consumed by marine life and ultimately, by us. We must, they realized, find alternatives.
