Baby Alpaca Chunky Beanies


Lovingly handcrafted, luxuriously soft, baby alpaca chunky beanies.

Fair trade handmade in Peru, every Ethica product carries the name of the woman who made it, dignified work for artisans providing immediate opportunity to support themselves and their families.

Beautifully warm and light to wear, beanies measure approx 31cm long and 45cm around rim. Choose from grey, sand or black.

In Inca times alpaca was considered "fibre of the gods” and rightly so. Alpaca is softer, stronger and warmer than merino wool and cashmere. Famous for its luxuriousness and softness - it doesn’t prickle the skin. With no lanolin content it is hypoallergenic.

Alpaca is easy to care for, just place in a tub of COLD water and use a mild detergent to gently soak the garment. No need to rub or twist, gently squeeze the suds through, then rinse in cold water and place flat on a towel to dry. 

Founded by the Sisters of Saint Joseph, Ethica is Mary MacKillop Today’s fair trade social enterprise, for over a decade aiming to ensure every product made creates meaningful change for the artisans, their families and communities.
