Alqo Wasi

Alqo Wasi

Inspired by her two Westies, Paco and Lua, Alqo Wasi (‘Dog Home’ in Quechua, the language of the Incas) was founded in 2005 by native Peruvian Patricia Queirolo. Working with women in vulnerable regions of Puno and Lima, Alqo Wasi provides training in weaving, knitting and embroidery, allowing locals to develop their skills to become more competitive in the labour market.

The team use only sustainable, eco friendly resources from high in the Andes, where herdsmen shear the Alpaca once every other year at the onset of the rainy season. Alpaca is one of the finest fibres in the world, seven times stronger and three times warmer than Merino wool, it contains microscopic air pockets which facilitates the creation of lightweight clothing with incredible warmth. Soft to the touch, Alpaca fibre is naturally hypoallergenic, lanolin free and doesn't absorb or retain moisture.

We are delighted to be able to bring you Alqo Wasi, the ultimate in warmth and comfort, this season.
