Our Heathered Beanie is made from 100% alpaca fibers, making it the optimal combination of warmth, style, and comfort. Pair with our Heathered Striped Scarf and Heathered Fingerless Mitts to complete the look.
How is it made?
This beanie is hand knit by women from our knitting cooperatives of Rumira and Puente Inca. Production takes place in individual artisans’ homes and in cooperatives’ artisan centers where the women meet several times per month. Production is portable allowing artisans to also work regularly in their fields and in public places.
What materials are used?
This beanie is made with 100% alpaca fiber. Alpaca fiber is finer, softer and warmer than sheep fiber. It doesn’t contain the oil lanolin, which makes it hypoallergenic.
