The Alpaca is a gentle grazing animal related to the llama and found in the Andes Mountains of Peru, Chile and Bolivia. Alpaca hair is of such an exquisite nature that in Incan times only royalty was allowed to wear clothing made from the fiber. Some of the key attributes of Alpaca:
  1. More than twice as warm as sheep's wool
  2. Three times stronger than sheep's wool
  3. Water resistant
  4. Excellent wrinkle resistance
  5. Incredibly soft and resilient...even more so than cashmere
  6. Elevated color brightness due to its natural luster
  7. Semi-hollow fiber that gives it unusual thermal warmth
  8. Unlike sheep's wool there is no lanolin and therefore less allergenic

If this sounds like a dream fiber...
believe it... because it is !!!


About Us


was founded in 2001 with a vision to create unique handcrafted clothing and accessories for women. The name Tey-Art denotes Textiles and Artistry. The key components of that vision was a commitment to natural, sustainable fibers such as alpaca, wool and cotton and to work only with factories and co-ops that subscribe to the principles of Fair Trade Labor. Tey-Art has become a company recognized for its vibrant, textural collections of finely crafted women's sweaters, hats, scarves, mittens, socks, handbags and belts. Working with the skilled artisans of Peru, many of whom are located high in the Andes mountains, has been an emotionally rewarding journey that we hope to continue for a long time.
