Industry of All Nations works with craftspeople around the world to produce unique, local goods for an international market. This IOAN Alpaca sweater is crafted by a cooperative in La Paz, Bolivia using local fibers. Alpaca is native to the highlands of Bolivia and Peru and comes in various natural colors ranging from soft greys and blacks to browns, beiges and whites. As a hollow core fiber, Alpaca acts as an effective thermal insulator, while allowing the body to breathe beneath the garment. In short, this is bascially the perfect winter sweater.
