This sumptuously soft, beautiful hat is part of our wonderful new alpaca collection. Handmade by women in a fair trade cooperative in Peru, it features an intricately knitted design topped off with an adorable pom pom. This is one of our warmest hats.
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.
50% baby alpaca, 50% highland wool.
