Alpaca fiber has been sheared, spun, knit, and woven in its land of origin – Peru – for millennia. Alliyma, a social enterprise wholly owned by Quechua Benefit, refined the existing, universally-practiced hand spinning activity for the benefit of remote highland Peruvian women.
Alliyma provides a lucrative, non-subsidized market for remote highland Quechua women. All profits are reinvested in Quechua Benefit’s programs in Peru to
- Empower women
- Educate children, and
- Provide parasitic anemia treatment
When you purchase Alliyma yarn, you allow these women to access the global marketplace and earn a fair market wage. Visit Alpacas.com today and choose from the beautiful selection of hand spun yarn.
