These luxurious Alqo Wasi Alpaca Sweaters are stylish, super-soft and cozy with the added benefit of being cut wider and shorter than other sweaters! Alpaca Fiber is super warm & insulating, yet lightweight enough to wear indoors. Incredible amount of stretch, so size XL fits a wide variety of dogs--wider at the chest and shorter length makes it perfect for pit bull-types!
ABOUT ALQO WASI: Their knitters are Peruvian women with low resources and are experts in weaving in hand looms, hand knitting and hand embroidering. They come from vulnerable and marginal zones. Working for ALQO WASI gives them the opportunity to develop their creative capabilities, making them feel more confident in themselves and revaluing the position of women and the important role they carry for the progress of their homes and community. (In other words, ALQO WASI ROCKS!)
ABOUT ALPACA: Andean herdsmen shear alpaca every other year at the onset of the rainy season. Seven times stronger and three times warmer than merino wool, the fiber contains microscopic air pockets that help to create a lightweight garment with extremely high insulating properties. Cashmere-like feel. Alpaca is renewable and sustainable!
