July 18, 2022
80% Alpaca/20% Tencel™ blend equals 100% natural comfort & performance
Kings Mountain, NC – July 18, 2022/OUTDOOR SPORTSWIRE/ – Appalachian Gear Company, the American-made outdoor apparel and equipment brand that continues to elevate performance gear with the use of alpaca fiber, is thrilled to announce the all-new AG-Tee. After countless hours of research and fabric development, Appalachian Gear Company has taken one of the world’s most basic wardrobe staples and created something entirely new: a lightweight, high-performance, 100% natural fiber tee durable enough to withstand thousands of miles of outdoor use.
After two years of research and development, and trial and error, Appalachian Gear Company constructed a synergistic blend of natural fibers that offers superior comfort and performance. The AG-Tee is engineered with an all-natural blend of 80% Alpaca and 20% Tencel™ that outperforms synthetics over a wider range of climates and environments. Combining the quick-drying, breathable, and thermoregulating qualities of alpaca with the softness and durability of Tencel™ produces a technical fabric that delivers incredible performance without the use of petroleum-based synthetics like polyester and nylon. Ideal for outdoor activities like thru-hiking, backpacking, trail running, climbing, and more, the AG-Tee provides exceptional insulation and cooling when needed, natural stretch and recovery without the use of synthetic elastics, and impressive odor control without the use of chemical products.
“Our AG-Tee is the first lightweight tech tee of its kind to utilize this precise blend of alpaca fibers and Tencel™,” says Appalachian Gear Company co-founder John Gage. “At Appalachian Gear Company we’ve always known that you can make high-performance apparel from 100% natural fibers, and it will stand up to any outdoor pursuit better than synthetics. This Tee is a truly sustainable option for anyone looking for a durable, lightweight, quick-drying, and comfortable shirt to wear for most activities.”
