SLATE + SALT - Essential Knit Alpaca Beanie (Beige)
Keep warm and look cool with this perfectly slouchy beanie. Throw it on and scrunch it back for an easy every day accessory. Alpaca fiber is considered by the fashion industry to be one the greenest, most natural and softest fibers in the world. This classic beanie is made on a hand knitting machine by a Fair Trade weaving cooperative in Peru. The cooperative has 80 small to midsize workshops located throughout Peru. Through textile production, they strive to create awareness and preserve Peruvian culture. They develop annual collections according to market trends and support the growth of artisans with technical assistance, training and loans. This transforms weavers into entrepreneurs and gives them access to the global marketplace.
