Hand knit in Peru from 100% Alpaca, this sweater is super soft, and so so comfy! We designed this sweater to be fitted through the bodice with oversized sleeves that make a statement. Fair warning: once you put this sweater on, you might never want to take it off.
We worked with a really special collective to produce these sweaters. Not only is the collective Fair Trade Certified, they also work with over 250 Peruvian mothers to hand knit each sweater. Upon receiving the sweaters, we were given the name of the mother who made the sweater. Click here to learn more about the knitters we worked with.

While we want and expect our pieces to last, we also understand that life happens. Whether it’s a stain from a night out, a tear from chasing the family or anything in between - if you don’t want it, don’t worry, we do! We will take back any of our pieces and take the responsibility of keeping it alive, recycling or disposing of it!
If you want to send us a piece, please use the contact us form. Below are the steps we take to ensure that our garments stay out of the landfill and how each piece can find a new home!
A few alterations, quick sew, good wash and some love can save quite a few pieces! Of the pieces that rock it and are viable for donation, we send them to Dress For Success. Dress For Success mission “is to empower women to achieve economic independence by providing a network of support, professional attire and the development tools to help women thrive in work and in life.” Of the pieces that don’t work for DFS but can still be worn, we donate it to other local non-profits.
At this stage, we can no longer save the garment and it’s time to find some more creative solutions.
For the scarps that don’t sell, we save them all! The plan is that if we accumulate enough scraps, we will use Lenzing’s Refibra technology to give them another life! Hopefully everything sells before this step but that is the plan!
This is never what you want to hear but unfortunately, it’s an inevitable part of the process. Nothing can ever be 100% perfect and 100% waste free. We understand that at some point our garments life cycle will come to an end. For ours, that means incineration. Incineration of usable fibers is terrible but incineration of unusable fiber provides energy to the grid. Most Life Cycle Assessment studies describe incineration as a positive step if all else fails. Remember, this is the last step.
The objective is simple - Buy a piece of non-agricultural land and run different ecological studies on the effects of natural fabric biodegradation on the natural environment. Our goal is to document everything and find ways of improving the process for the entire system! We can do this will all of our undyed pieces. More to come later!
