Nestled in the Andean highlands of Peru, the mountain city of Ayacucho is home to some of the finest wool-workers in the world. Wool is collected from free-range sheep and then hand-spun, dyed with indigenous vegetable extracts and high-quality synthetics and then woven on a loom and removed for hand-embroidery. Our co-op in Ayacucho follows the principles of fair-trade and is composed of 26 families utilizing over 60 looms.
