From the Andes to the Amazon, Made in Peru search for the things that bring colour, light and energy to peoples lives.
Hand Knitted 100% Alpaca
100% pure alpaca hand knitted in the high Andes Mountains. These coveted and highly sought after garments are rare to find as they are made by ladies who live very high up in the mountains. Once a week, or every two weeks, or whenever their heart desires, they make the trek down the mountains to sell their super soft, super beautiful and super warm products made from their own pet alpacas' wool.
Alpacas are very eco-friendly as they do not eat the whole grass (roots and all) when they graze, unlike goats for cashmere. Due to the high demand in cashmere, whole plains in China are being turned into desert as more and more goats are bred and more grass is needed.
Alpaca is hypoallergenic and also suitable for babies. It does not itch or scratch, unlike wool.
