    Is Alpaca Wool Cruelty-Free? (Spoiler Alert: It’s Cruelty-Free)

    What social responsibility means to Tuwi

    It’s almost a year since my last trip to Peru, for the World Fair Trade Organisation Summit. I had a wonderful time and found two new suppliers, but the poverty I witnessed only served to strengthen my commitment to fair trade principles, leading to more sustainable communities. And in the past year, Tuwi’s heartland has seen so much suffering that I’m more convinced than ever that I made the right…

    Help To Heal Tuwi’s Heartland

    Tuwi’s roots are in Peru and we have been saddened by the disproportionate suffering caused by the pandemic despite the country having an early and long lockdown (from mid March to the end of August).  The European Centre for Disease Prevention and Control reported last week (July 25) that Peru has had more than 17,000 confirmed deaths, the most in a Latin American country after Brazil, and 375,961 cases (ahead…

    Staying home, what I find useful

    The pandemic certainly came as a shock to us all. I am full of gratitude for all the key workers still doing their jobs so the rest of us can shelter in our own homes and wait for the worse to pass.

    Alpaca – The Superpower Fibre

    I love taking a complete break at Christmas, enjoying family time and watching movies on the sofa under my alpaca blanket. But even when I’m watching The Incredibles 2 with my kids (about the family where everyone has a superpower), I’m thinking about alpaca.
