Our Alpaca and Wool yarns are spun by farmers in Peru that are committed to sustainability, as well as a deep connection to their local communities. The farmers are also committed to the fair treatment of the animals and the alpaca and wool yarns are cruelty free.
Alpaca is warmer, stronger, lighter and softer than materials such as cashmere and merino wool. It is known for its luxurious fleece and versatility: it won’t shrink or pill if given correct care, it is hyper allergenic and has water resistant properties.
By buying an alpaca product, you are directly contributing to the livelihood to the people who depend on exporting this wonderful fibre to survive.
Our wool comes from sheep in the Andean Highlands. It's incredibly soft (the softest we've ever felt!) and there are many beautiful natural colours. All the yarns we use are not processed or dyed before being spun and knit into sweaters in our partner workshop in Peru.
