What do lazy llamas and snow storms have in common?

Wednesday, February 13, 2019

They go together hand in hand! 

You know those days when the weather predicts a tiny little dusting of snow and before you know it, there are 6 inches on the ground?  Well... today was one of those days, and I was especially glad to be wearing my new alpaca wool hoody from Lazy Llama Alpaca Wear.  

Lazy Llama makes reversible beanies, fingerless gloves, infinity scarves, hooded gaiters, and hoodys all from fair trade alpaca fibers that are produced by families in Peru.  Everything is designed and manufactured locally in Salt Lake City, Utah in the most eco-friendly ways possible.  I especially loved my hoody, because it was warm and cozy while I was outside, but was also lightweight enough that I could wear it while teaching all day before exploration time started.  It is also incredibly soft, but doesn't have the itchy feeling that comes with many wool garments, which made it ideal for a work day to fun night transition.  Alpaca wool also just so happens to be moisture wicking (hello, perfect for hikes on weird weather days) and hypoallergenic (oh, hey... so truly kind of the perfect thing to wear on a spring hike when pollen is all over the place), and is eco-friendly. 

Lazy Llama is also pretty groovy and in addition to purchasing their fibers from families in Peru, they donate a portion of sales proceeds back to those very families so that they can continue to support themselves and can continue to take care of the alpacas! 

What is sustainable about this outfit?
