Peruvian Trading Hats, Scarves, Mittens

Have you seen the adorable hats, fingerless mittens and scarves we are now selling here at the store? They’re from the Peruvian Trading Company and most are hand knitted from either alpaca wool or Peruvian Highland wool…and they are sooo soft! The Peruvian Trading Company is based in Lima, Peru and they employ groups of family knitters from nearby communities, helping to raise the standard of living in these communities. Many of these groups of family knitters are now able to send more of their children to primary school and even college! The Peruvian Trading Company has been trading fairly with their knitters since before “fair trade” became popular!
