Tiodoro and Juana Pacco, from the Palca community of Puno, have dedicated their lives to the creation of beautifully soft, hand-woven alpaca textiles. They raise the alpacas themselves, sheer and clean the wool, spin the yarn, and dye the fibers using natural plants and minerals. Only then do they begin the weaving process using large wooden floor looms, which allow for a looser weave and super-soft textiles.
The results speak for themselves: the coziest alpaca scarves of the highest quality, created with care by Tiodoro, Juana and a small collective of fellow weavers.
