Our Aymara textile line is designed in line with the principles of Nordic design tradition and made from 100% of the finest but made from the purest alpaca wool produced by highly skilled craftsmen in Bolivia. This combination results in a simple product of eminent quality.
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 it’s proficiency with natural fibres and expertise with alpaca wool that dates 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 have been passed on from generation to generation since the ancient civilizations of the Andes.
Alpaca as a Material
Our Alpaca fibres are 100% organic and are not made in combination with 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 sensitive skin. Unlike most other types of wool, it does not contain lanolin – making it 100% allergy friendly.
