All of our Alpaca yarn knits are made in Cochabamba, the heart of Bolivia. We work with a co-operative that empowers knitters to work around their needs. Each knitter is able to work from home in order to tend to their families and avoid timely commutes into the city. The yarn and design information is delivered to them from the main office.
Working with our Bolivian makers allows us to produce small quantities for our small but growing brand which helps us to avoid over production and waste. Alpaca is one of the most sustainable yarns in the world and has a large variety of natural shades which we are utilizing more and more as we grow to become less reliant on synthetic dyes.
