Fair trade principles do not only mean paying a fair price for the products (although that is important). Fair trade means making the suppliers’ economic base more sustainable so that the communities that depend on them are stronger and better able to survive disasters such as the pandemic.
The wonderful facts about baby alpaca fibre:
First, it does not come from baby animals. The term ‘baby alpaca’ describes how fine the fibre is (19,5-21,5 microns).
Baby alpaca fibre is:
– Luxurious: comparable to cashmere in its softness but is rarer than cashmere, more eco-friendly and more sustainable.
– Lightweight and breathable: its outstanding thermal qualities means baby alpaca blankets and throws keep you cool in the heat as well as cosy in winter.
– Hypoallergenic: no lanolin, so ideal for babies and those with sensitive skin.
– Self-cleansing, water repellent, elastic and durable. Your baby alpaca scarf, blanket or throw is a long-term investment which you will enjoy for many years.
