Our knitted toys are entirely handmade, in a fair trade workshop in Bolivia, which offers good working conditions and a fair income to women who can neither read nor write. This solidarity-based economy contributes to improve the living conditions of families and ensuring the schooling of children.
All our soft toys are made in pure Baby Alpaca wool, a renewable, highly ecological natural fibre. They are stuffed with recycled plastic bottles fibres. The wool comes from a spinning mill located in the Bolivian Andes, which is supplied by small breeders. We use as much as possible the natural colours of alpaca: white, black, shades of grey and brown. All our other colours are made with eco-friendly, non toxic dyes.
You can machine wash you soft toy at 30°C on delicate cycle. However, we recommend you to wash it by hand as often as possible, in cold water, with a gentle detergent like baby shampoo. Soak for few minutes, gently rub and rinse. Remove excess water carefully, avoiding any wringing or twisting. Reshape, lay fly on a dry towel and allow it to dry naturally.
Before storing, make sure that your soft toy is fully dry. Store it with a dried lavender sachet, to keep moths away. Cedar wood chips are also useful to repel insects and harmful organisms.
