    Hand knitted ribbed beanie in organic baby alpaca fibre with super soft alpaca leather pom-pom.

    Baby alpaca fibres are incredibly soft and lightweight. It is known for providing super insulation due to the microscopic air pockets in the fibres, therefore it keeps you warm in the winter and cool in the summer. The same air pockets make the fibres feel as light as air and yet the fibre is very strong, meaning it lasts longer than most other similar fibres like wools, cashmere and silk. With care, my alpaca Copenhagen garments will become heirloom pieces that you will pass down through the generations.

    my alpaca Copenhagen garments are handmade by skilled and organised groups of Peruvian women, following strict quality standards. They train and work with groups of women, promoting better livelihoods for them and their families. They use only fair-trade practices.

    Care: wash only when required. Handwash in cool water with gentle wool shampoo, press moisture out in a towel, reshape and dry flat. 

    *About the Alpaca Leather Pom-poms:

    Peruvian alpaca farming is a thousand year old tradition. Alpacas are indigenous to the Peruvian highlands where they have been domesticated since the time of Pre Incan cultures. Alpacas are bred in their natural high altitudes where they can withstand temps from -20 to 30 degrees.

    Alpaca breeders belong to millenary organised communities in southern Andes of Peru and they are the first to respect and protect their animals as they depend on them as a source of a sustainable form of living.

    The fur my alpaca use for pompoms comes from alpacas that have died from natural causes, the harsh weather in the alpaca-producing zones causes the death of around 15 per cent of baby alpacas in the first three months of life.
