Artisan Profile - Allpa is a weaving collective that has 80 small to midsize workshops located throughout Peru. Through their textile production they support the growth of artisans, provide access to the global market place, and preserve Peruvian culture. The alpaca live mostly without any boundaries in the highlands of the Peruvian Andes and are not harmed during the shearing process. Alpaca is the only animal that produces up to 28 natural colors and can be blended into an infinite array of natural shades from inky black to warm chestnuts and snowy white. It is easily dyed in any color (without using any harsh chemicals) and always retains its natural luster. It is supple and smooth to the touch, softer than cashmere, and warmer and stronger than lamb’s wool. It contains microscopic air pockets which create lightweight clothing with excellent insulating properties.
