We can all agree that fluffy animals are pretty much the best thing ever. But there are lots of different kinds of stuffed animals. They can be made with all sorts of fibers. 
Why are alpaca wool stuffed animals superior to acrylic toys? 
Alpaca wool stuffed animals are made of natural fibers, fairtrade-certified, promote the local economy, and are handmade and completely one-of-a-kind. 
You won’t find many other toys like these stuffed animals. Let’s talk about what makes alpaca wool toys so special.
  1. They’re made of natural fibers

Alpaca wool stuffed animals are made of all-natural materials. There’s no manmade materials here. Everything is naturally and ethically sourced. Alpacas have to be shorn to keep them in good health.
This creates a lot of fluff that they no longer need. So what should we do with it? We make it into cute and fluffy stuffed animals. Everybody gets a good deal this way. ;)

  1. Natural alpaca toys are fairtrade and support the local economy

We source our alpaca toys from Peru. They are made by local artisans, who get the wool from local alpaca farmers spread all across the Andes. This helps support the local economy.
Fairly traded means making sure they have a living wage, good working conditions, and better prices. It’s all about sustainability and community.
