Wool and Alpaca Fibers | South America
The journey begins in South America where our natural wool and alpaca fibers are ranched. The alpaca fibers come from the beautiful country of Peru and the 100% GOTS certified wool from Argentina is sheared from sheep reared in organic farms that adhere to strict rules of animal health and well-being. This ensures that not only do our fibers meet the organic standard, but are also certified non-mulesed.
Spinning and Dyeing | Manifattura Sesia | Novara, Italy
The wool and alpaca fibers continue their journey in the Northwest region of Italy in Novara where the entire spinning and dyeing process takes place. The driving force behind Sesia’s commitment to quality is the “Made in Italy”standard that has become synonymous with quality and beauty.
We are proud to have partnered with Manifattura Sesia and admire their demonstrated commitment to meeting environmental standards and how they are constantly striving to better their process. By keeping the entire process integrated in their own facility and undergoing constant quality checks at every stage, Sesia ensures that each yarn adheres to the strictest quality control guidelines. In fact, In 2002 Sesia secured ISO 9001 certification which testifies to the existence of a management system capable of ensuring control over all company processes and, consequently, the manufacturing of high-quality products.
As is the case with all of our alpaca sweaters, the alpaca fibers are not dyed and their natural colors is exactly what you see in the sweater. The wool fibers are dyed using non-toxic dyes and the entire dying process is GOTS certified. The process of obtaining this certification calls for a rigorous internal and external analysis of the company’s positive environmental practises and are considered to be of exceptional quality. Through this partnership our final product is one that consists not only of a beautiful, warm alpaca and wool that is soft next to skin, but one whose impact from fiber to finished garment is thoughtfully considered.

Once spooled, our yarn is sent to Ball of Cotton in Commerce, CA. They are one of the last remaining high-end knitters in the country.
