The 100% naturally dyed baby alpaca yarn is dyed in a traditional way and is very labour intensive. Thus job opportunities are created which correspond to the culture and tradition of the Andean people. The colours are anallergenic and non-hazardous to human health which is specifially important with the use for babies' or children's garments. The colours stem from completey renewable resources and are 100% biologically degradable.
Baby alpaca is gained from species-appropriately kept animals that have free moving-space and which are highly appreciated and worshipped in Peru.
All these are essential criteria with the choice of a genuine natural product for ecologically conscious or vegan living persons.
