My Families involvement in the Alpaca business dates back to 1979. That is when my parents started their Alpaca sweater business called Designer Threads. Back then my family would travel around during the summer from fair to fair selling the Alpaca sweaters.
Now we started PeruvianAccent.com. The focus is still on producing fine Alpaca products but we expanded our product line to include handmade blankets, fur pillows, bears, fur pom poms and luxury beanies. Our customers are very specific. They appreciate quality over lowest price. That is exactly what we strive to deliver.
Alpaca is considered a luxury fiber. It’s lack of lanolin makes it hypoallergenic and perfect for people with sensitive skin. The hair is hollow which regulates heat. It is warmer than sheep’s wool, very durable and does not itch.
All our products are handmade in the Andes region of Peru using techniques that have been passed down generation to generation. Some are made by a Co-op of single mothers that my mother started, and all our artisans receive fair trade wages and safe working conditions.
