If you’ve always wanted an alpaca, this is your time to shine. Crafted lovingly by our Peruvian artisan entrepreneurs with 100% ethically-harvested sheep wool.

This little bud is from the camelid family, a relative of the llama. Real alpacas are shorn but once a year, and we work closely with alpaqueros in Peru who send us videos of their sheering process, before they transform their fleece into the alpaca products we sell!

In Incan cultural history, alpaca fleece was reserved only for Incan royalty. The alpaca is an important animal for Pervuian heritage, and its cousin, the vicuna, is on the Peruvian coat of arms.

Therapy animals bring calm and joy into a space and into your everyday. Alpacas are actually used as therapy animals. A great addition for littles to keep in their pockets, as well as for home offices and shelves for the not-so-littles. A little mascot for your day.

HOW WE PACK IT

We repurpose all packaging materials we receive for order shipments, including any cardboard boxes, paper, tissue, and corn-based packing peanuts.
