Fair: We know our knitting artists personally and maintain fair relationships – even friendships. With your ACHIY coarse knit sweater you help us to keep the traditional Peruvian knitting art of our friends alive. Alpacas are part of the unique heritage of Peruvian traditions. With your purchase you contribute directly to the livelihood of local families whose greatest pride is to bring the divinely soft wool products into the world.
Natural: All our actions are influenced by the desire to act in harmony with Mother Earth. For this simple reason, our coarse knit sweaters are made of 100% baby alpaca wool from the Peruvian highlands. Our wool is naturally dyed from plants in the Andes. Experience the real purity.
Divinely soft: The insider name for alpaca wool is also the “fleece of the gods”. The legendary softness arises from the special nature of the wool fibers and creates a uniquely warm, silky and soft skin feeling. And when it is warm outside, let the coolness of the alpaca wool surprise you.
Shipping: All our sweaters are shipped with RePack. The reusable packaging consists of recycled materials. RePack packaging is designed to last at least 20 order cycles, saving up to 80% CO2 emissions.
