My daughter bought me a pair of your lovely leg warmers for Xmas - I have only taken them off to go to bed! They are sooooooo warm and soft and don’t itch!
I suffer with cold feet (and hands) but these leg warmers have kept my feet super cosy, even when barefoot, so I just wanted to say thank you for making them 😊 I love them 🧡
The Mamacha waistcoat in Blue Marl is my first experience with alpaca - I chose it as a change to cashmere - and am so glad I did. The wool is wonderfully light , warm and slightly "springy". The understated colour & classic cut makes just as much at home under a tweed jacket in the office as with chinos on the weekend. Before ordering I spoke to Amy and was delighted to learn more about the ethical production and high standards of animal welfare . Highly recommeded.
Bought the slippers. 2nd pair and she is again delighted with them, so warm and comfortable. Great service. Prompt delivery and the little personal touches, fantastic.
Ordered a slouch beret and am blown away by the quality, style and super fast delivery. Now ordered more headwear. The whole philosophy of this company in supporting women in Peru and its ethnical approach, coupled with a luxury wool and stylish product is outstanding. Can't recommend highly enough.
I ordered the red slippers and love, love, love them. The simple shape and fit is just what I need to keep off the wintry chill without feeling too clumpy. I can even wear them to bed if necessary. Thanks so much. The wristwarmers are beautiful too. Well made. Simple design. Great colour. Fit well and are super cosy. I guess I won't be taking them off for a while! Thanks again x
Men's zip neck alpaca jumper: great jumper, nice oatmeal fleck colour, lovely and soft, I can see this is going to be a real favourite! Great service from Mamacha.
I have been very pleased with my purchase of a stone alpaca jumper a year or so ago and have now bought a second, this time in blue. Good luck with your project.
Hi Amy, my gorgeous shawl arrived this morning. I love it! I am travelling to Europe next month and will be just what I need for the long haul plane trip from Australia. Beautiful quality and lovingly made. Please thank the Peruvian ladies for their fabulous work. Deb
Delighted to receive a replacement for my light grey cloche hat - lost in Paris during the recent disturbances, and much missed. Many thanks.
Thank you so much for the navy blue cable hat my nan gave me for Christmas. She told me how helpful and kind you were and emailed her when one came in. It matches my wrist warmers and scarf also from Mamacha.
I think this is a brilliant clothing brand and the whole idea of the company is amazing and there should be more organisations designed to help promote the skills of these small communities. The products are better than any chain store and it feels more wholesome and loved.
Thankyou again! Happy Holidays!
Hola Mama! Many thanks for the Alpaca headband - a beautiful piece of craftwomanship - warm, not too heavy, a lovely colour. Every bit as nice as the fingerless gloves I purchased 2 or 3 years ago (still in ex. condition)
It's a treat these days to receive something that arrives as advertised on a website instead of in a different colour, or the wrong item completely, or of shabby quality.
These Peruvian artisans evidently take as great a pride in their craft, as you do in your business. Perhaps I'll treat myself to a poncho next...
The oatmeal alpaca men's pullover was ordered yesterday afternoon and arrived this morning! It fits my husband perfectly and he is delighted with it. It is a very good length for his long back and the sleeves are long enough too. Thank you!
Purchase of an Alpca Headband. Very well made. Beautifull wool. It will been worn lots through the coming winter.
Please support the work in Peru every one.
My plain black poncho arrived this morning. I wanted a symmetrical, plain warm poncho to wear inside and out in a lovely yarn that was reasonable priced and have been hunting for a long time for this 'Holy Grail' item. I put it on and feel like a million dollars.
It's wonderful - amazing quality and so comfortable. It's rich black and that it won't bobble is a huge bonus.
I like the products and the values that Mamacha offers. Peruvian styles are lovely in Peru but hard to wear in the west. Mamacha's things are very wearable and compare with upmarket labels like Brora... but buying them benefits Peruvian women and they are better value.
I hope during the impending Western capitalist orgy that is Christmas to buy some of my presents on here and it won't be hard to find lovely things that my friends and family will be thrilled with and wouldn't find in the shops.
I couldn't be more impressed; Thank you Mamacha.
Received the alpaca wrist and leg warmers. Great items. Good to know that buying these items helps support skilled workers having better and honest employment benefits and a better life. More power to this seller who sets a good example. Thank you.
I have just received my headband and am delighted with it. I get a lot of earache, even when it's not particularly cold so this is the perfect solution for me. I love alpaca wool and it's good to be able to support a good cause. Could we please have a shawl-collar cardigan?
Love my hat and "vintage mittens". I am waiting for more colours in those mittens. I don't like gloves as much, so to find mittens in alpaca wool was great. Very pleased I found this website, as unfortunately Mamacha does not come to my neck of the woods. Also pleased to support the ladies in Peru, having been to that wonderful country.
I was devastated when my crocheted hat (a Christmas gift) mysteriously disappeared from the gym changing room on a bitterly cold day. Cross though I was, I do understand why it was so desirable: the softness and warmth of it almost make me wishing for the wintry weather and a reason to wear it. I'm delighted to now have its replacement and will be taking great care not to lose this one. Thanks to Amy for getting it to me so quickly and every good wish for the continuing support of Mamacha for the workers of Peru!
I'm extremely impressed with my beautiful, handmade belt and Amy's excellent customer service.
I really shouldn't wear my mamacha zip-up alpaca jumper to the office every day for months on end. But....
Hi,I bought a set of coasters from Amnesty they are really beautiful and very unusual.
I am a keen knitter, have you ever thought of providing alpaca wool?
Thank you, we're glad you like the coasters!
Yes, we have been asked before if we provide alpaca wool. It's something we're planning for the future so watch this space....
Just wearing my newest, 3rd shawl, alpaca and silk combination, very warm and easy, aed with an added luxurious feel... very, very pleased and toastie! Would love to see more shawls/ and colour combinations on the website....
Thanks to Amy for a great service and much luck taking this venture forward.
I was bought a charcoal zip neck jumper for Christmas. Unfortunately it was too big, but Amy agreed to swap it without a moments hesitation (even though I had no receipt)and there was no postage charge for the re-sending of the smaller size - a superb service and a lovely snug jumper too! Many thanks.
My husband loves his charcoal grey jumper, bought at Eton Action Fair this year. It is wonderfully warm whilst being light to wear. Fantastic that it is an ethical clothing product as well - not easy to find at such a good price. About to buy him the same in the green!
Hi Amy, Just to let you know that I'm really delighted with the quality of the alpaca men's jumper, and thanks for sending it through so quickly! Ali
Thank you for a lovely pair of mittens to go with my amazing hat (bought last year) both made by Benedicta...
So love her work.
Mamacha is greenbelt treasure!
Maybe a scarf next year... :)
Thank you so much!
We love the scarf that we bought at Greenbelt! We may share it.......
