Description

This handmade alpaca hat (called “Pixel”) by Shupaca Alpaca is as warm as it is beautiful! It has a cuff for an extra cozy fit around the forehead and lots of stretch to comfortably fit most adult heads. But perhaps most importantly, it’s super warm to keep you cozy all winter long. These unisex alpaca fleece hats come in various colours to match your style.

Skilled indigenous makers weave these toques by hand in Ecuador, just as they’ve woven alpaca fibres for centuries. They receive a fair wage for their work, and you can rest assured that no alpacas were harmed in the making of these beautiful hats! Alpacas are revered animals in the region, and their welfare is essential to the locals, as their fur is a crucial source of income year after year. The shearing helps to keep the alpacas comfortable in the warmer months while also providing a beautiful raw material with which the makers can earn a decent wage.

Available in two gorgeous colour palettes, this minimalist knit hat will go perfectly with whatever other winter wear you have! You can choose between an eggplant heather colour scheme and a blue heather colour scheme.

The fairly neutral colour palettes make these hats appropriate for everyone, regardless of gender. We find that these hats are especially popular with men.

Fairly traded textiles and accessories make a real difference to farmers and workers in the Global South, so be sure to choose ethical brands to make an impact!
