Angel Touch Organic Baby Alpaca is made from 100% organic and Fair Trade naturally pigmented Peruvian baby alpaca.
For over 8,000 years, the graceful Andean alpaca has dominated the highest mountains of the New World, grazing on wild pastures 4,000 metres above sea level. These animals provide the finest, warmest and most luxurious textile fibres to knitters and weavers in one of the most difficult and delicate environments on earth.
In support of the noble Andean herders, Peru Naturetex established a program to value naturally coloured alpaca fibre and to increase the use of traditional methods of pest and disease control. No chemical ingredients are permitted, either on the land or on the animals. Hand sorting these natural colours also gives employment to dozens of women highly skilled in visual and tactile recognition of beautiful alpaca fibres.
