Unisex Alpaca Accordian Hat, Peru

This luxuriously soft alpaca hat will look great on both women and men.  Handmade by women in a fair trade cooperative in Peru, it is made of 100% baby alpaca - one of the world's most luxurious fibers.  Wear it cuffed or open for a slouch effect.

Considered by many a higher quality material than cashmere, alpaca is one of the world’s most valuable natural fibers. Just ask any Incan Emperor why only the royal families were allowed to wear it!  It is luxuriously soft (not at all itchy!), hypoallergenic, breathable, warm, lightweight and durable.  Best of all, it is a natural, eco-friendly fiber and the artisans are paid fair wages.  

100% Baby Alpaca
