Our Aymara textile line is designed with Nordic design traditions and made from 100% of the finest and purest alpaca wool produced by highly skilled craftsmen in Bolivia. A combination resulting in a simple eminence product.
In our travels around the world, the alpaca from the Bolivian Highlands caught our immediate attention due to the supreme quality of the alpaca fibres. Bolivia is known for their expertise in alpaca wool, dating back thousands of years.
Our local partner in Bolivia is a cooperative owned by 400 alpaca farmers and knitters. Their skills and knowledge of the material and the craftsmanship have been passed on from generation to generation since the ancient civilizations of the Andes – making this a once in a lifetime item.
Alpaca as a Material
Our Alpaca fibres are 100% pure with no combinations of other wool mixes or synthetic fibres. The fibre is very fine, yet extremely durable and the textiles produced from it last a very long time. The alpaca fibre is not prickly and perfect for a sensitive skin. Unlike most other types of wool, it does not contain lanolin – making it 100% allergy friendly.
