PRODUCT DESCRIPTION

The Pitukiska Baby Alpaca Toque Chullo Hats, knit by hand in sumptuously soft baby alpaca, are treasures of Andean history!

Known as chullos (pronounced chul-yoh) in Quechua, they were first made thousands of years ago out of necessity: temperatures in the high Andes often fall below freezing, with a biting wind that freezes your ears! The earflaps offer protection from the cold.

Each Pitukiska Baby Alpaca Toque is made by an indigenous artisan in the high Andean community of Pitukiska, in the Mapacho River Valley, with hand-spun baby alpaca fiber from free-range alpaca herds and natural dye materials.
