Those wonderfull soft and warm hats are hand knitted by skilled artisans in Marcapata. The hats are knitted in Frisenvang’s handspun 100% Royal/baby alpaca wool yarn.
The women in the mountains are always spinning yarn, weaving or knitting. At the small workshop in Marcapata the women are always knitting as soon as there are 2 min break.
Sales of their hand knitted products will create some extra income for the women, this will ensure education of their children.
When you buy products from Frisenvang you are contributing to improving living conditions for families in the Andes Mountains who now are living below the poverty line. See more in section ”the good cause”.
