Join the Alpaca Movement!
An alternative to the traditional, industrial wool that stands by the environmental values of a modern consumer.
High altitude grazing lands are not suitable for traditional farming. Alpacas make the most out of this biome and don't affect the land we need to maintain to lower our ecological footprint!
Each of ÄYAHOME's Alpaca blankets come with a handwritten note. What are you waiting for? Send a letter and a gift to your mother, father, sibling, or that special person in mind!
Think of alpaca wool trimming as a cute haircut for our fluffy friends. Just like you and I, Alpacas could use a trim once every while. This will prevent any painful knots from forming in their hair.
There are many reasons why Alpaca wool is THE most sustainable wool out there. Apart from their environmentally friendly habitat, they produce much more wool than your average sheep. This means they even need less resources to be taken care of! Their hooves are also padded and soft, protecting the grasslands underneath their feet.
ÄYAHome's values highly center around ethical sourcing. Our representatives visit the Alpaca farms in Peru frequently and see the hair trimming process. From what they've reported, it's CUTE! Everyone needs a haircut to maintain their hygiene and Alpacas are no exception.
The agriculture industry accounts for 64% of all deforestation. At this rate, the earth will have no more major forests in only 25 years! Statistics don't lie. Sheep take up a lot of flat land to cultivate; land that could otherwise be used to grow crops and alleviate the pressure needed to feed every single person on this planet. It's now time to change our consumption habits and look for a more sustainable alternative: Alpaca wool.
Don't worry! ÄYAHome has made sure that no babies were harmed in the trimming process! In fact, when the warm weather season arrives in the Andean mountains, the baby Alpacas need their first ever shave to protect them from the heat. This shave only comes once in a lifetime and is referred to a Baby Alpaca wool. Soft, fuzzy, premium, and chic.
Depending on the composition of the wool the Alpaca market can vary dramatically in price. Not to worry! ÄYAHome's product ranges in price so that there is something for everyone. Still don't find something you love in your price range? Stay tuned for our many seasonal discounts to come!
Hundreds of ÄYAHome's customers purchase our products for gifting purposes each year. For this reason, we integrated the gifting process into our core values. What better than receiving a warm, fuzzy blanket from a loved one alongside a personalized letter of appreciation?! All within a click away. Upon purchasing our products, we will allow you to input a short message that we will place in our delivery boxes and deliver to the door. What are you waiting for? ;)
The Alpaca Journey
An insight into the beautiful practice of Alpaca farming
In the Andean mountains, 4000 meters above sea level, the Alpacas roam for food. They graze on land not suitable for traditional farming, leaving large areas available for food production. Sustainable & care-free.
