Women’s cropped knit made from 100% organic baby alpaca. Designed by UMIFORM, our own Woollykins Women's label and ethically made in Peru in collaboration with My Alpaca Copenhagen.
We love how this cropped style garter stitch sweater sits at the perfect length for wearing with dresses or high waisted pants. Very flattering boxy style jumper. With full length long arms with a long rib cuff that can be turned back or worn long to cover half of the hand. Knit in beautifully soft melange dyed baby alpaca yarn. Features a small cable on the back and a contrasting row of colour on the cuffs, neckline and waistband.
100% Baby Alpaca from Peru. Oeko Tex certified.
Baby alpaca fibres are super 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, alpaca knits become heirloom pieces that you will pass down through the generations.
