Why HOPE Made in the world


Written by: Lucia Ripoll There is a new conscience arising on the planet today. It relates to our awareness that the world we live in is to be savoured as a whole.

Alpaca Fiber


Alpacas are a tamed species of camelids from the Andean Region in South America, which resemble small llamas. They produce one of the world’s most luxurious fibers that are softer than cashmere, and lighter, warmer, and more durable than wool.  Alpaca is either light or heavy, depending on how it is spun.
