This beautiful, soft hat is part of our wonderful new alpaca collection. Handmade by women in a fair trade cooperative in Peru, it is made of light weight, 100% baby alpaca - one of the world's most luxurious fibers. The textured knitted design is beautiful and the colors are stunning.
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
