Story

A practical yet cozy fingerless glove allowing mobile device use. Hand-crafted with a heathered look for a timeless accessory. Hand-knit from un-dyed, hand-spun, 100% alpaca, these gloves are weather-resistant, breathable, and hypoallergenic.

Textile Tradition: Our Yura collection is special for its use of handspun, undyed, all natural alpaca yarn which we procure from our partner artisans. The alpacas are taken care of by certain community members who shear them in traditional, mindful ways. The next step is to spin the fiber to create smooth and uniform yarn. Using the same technique passed down for generations, the women spin the raw fiber using a wooden drop spindle called a phuska.

Artisans: We partner with women artisans in the Huilloc community for the handspun yarn. For knitting, we work with approximately 55 women in 3 different cooperatives - Puente Inca, Rumira & Puka Rosas.
