Do you know that Alpaca wool is one of the most eco-responsible materials ? Indeed the Alpaca is an animal very respectful of nature: - it does not damage the ground and the vegetation. Thanks to its pads instead of hooves, it is super delicate when it walks and this allows not to impact the life of the vegetation on which it moves. In addition, the Alpaca has the gift of not tearing the roots of the plants it eats thanks to its upper lips which are split in two, because this allows it to handle what it eats more easily. How well nature is! - Alpaca wool is a renewable resource
: the shearing of the Alpaca is done every year from the 4 years of the animal, this allows to obtain wool every year! The positive point is that the shearing of Alpacas is essential for the well-being of the animal, it avoids any hypothermia of the animal or discomfort because of the heaviness of the excess wool. - Alpaca does not pollute : did you know that Alpaca produces very little greenhouse gas compared to sheep and cows? Another important point that places it at the top of the most environmentally friendly animals.

Don't panic, take your time, knitting is learned with practice .
