Winterbourne Alpaca products are true treasures!
Made using premium Andean alpaca fleece, each piece is hand crafted with love using traditional techniques honed by Quechua artisans. Unlike sheeps wool, alpaca fleece is hypoallergenic by nature, while being softer, lighter, and warmer too! Founded as a collaborative effort between Canadian designers and South American master weavers, more than 10 years later we still work hand in hand with the families and Indigenous groups with whom we first partnered. Our direct buying practices ensure ethical, top quality products and our product line has expanded from scarves to include socks, mittens, beanies, and stuffies some of which are blended with bamboo and now known as Pakaboo! We are not only committed to preserving ancient textile traditions, but to sharing these luxurious garments with the world.
