This sweet Alpaca Ornament has been handmade in the Arequipa region of Southern Peru. Each ornament has been adorned with hand-sewn details and covered in luxurious, soft and natural alpaca fiber.
Alpacas are members of the South American camelid family. They are indigenous to the highlands of the Andes where their breeding is a vital component of the economy for a large sector of the population. Alpacas are prized for their natural, silky and soft fiber that is biodegradable and hypoallergenic.

Fewer than one alpaca exists per acre; their impact on the environment is minimal. No harm is caused to the alpacas during the sheering process, which occurs only once every 12 months.
These small Alpaca Ornaments are a natural and cute holiday decoration. They can also be used as a sweet table decoration.
