<< Back to Meet The Knitters
 

These knitters live in a remote, rural area high in the Andes.  It is about 2 hours drive from Cusco, off the road heading south towards Sicuani.   The landscape is stunningly beautiful.

 

A local mother co-ordinates the knitting; distributing the alpaca wool to the knitters for them to take home to fulfil our orders in their own time and checking the quality and measurements of the finished pieces.  The language spoken is Quechua.
