Where Does Our FIBER Come From? Visiting Alpaca Herders in The High Andes...

It is October, and the start of the Alpaca Shearing Season. We are here to witness the very first of around 4,000 alpacas that will be sheared over the next few months. Other local communities come together to help each other with this massive task. But it really all starts with an offering to the spirit of Pachamama, Mother Earth - using the sacred Coca leaves (which are also a natural remedy for the symptoms of being at high altitude), giving thanks and a hope that it will be a successful and abundant season.
