The Lacorine Luxury Alpaca Story
Once you have stroked one of our soft and fluffy alpaca fur hats or worn one of our shawls or capes you will be smitten for life! Our hats are unbelievably warm yet so light you barely feel them on your head – perfect for a wedding or the races. They’re available in the brightest of colours as well as natural hues and we also sell gorgeous fur headbands and scarves and a bespoke range of soft alpaca knits.
Our clothing is designed by me and handmade in Peru by highly skilled artisans who live in remote villages and use skills that have been passed down through generations. Finding these talented artisans is no mean feat and local knowledge and contacts are key. The fact that I’m from Peru has enabled us to create lasting relationships centred on trust and respect and the love of the alpaca itself. I spend a great deal of time sourcing and designing my collection while on the ground in Peru which ensure each item is of the highest quality.
Lacorine fur derives from alpacas that have died naturally during the harsh Peruvian Winters when many young crias are overcome by the conditions. This is a great loss to the herdsmen whose livelihoods depend on the alpaca fleeces produced throughout the animal’s life. None of these alpacas were harmed by humans.
All our products are hypoallergenic with no lanolin content; we are a member of the British Association for Fair Trade Shops and Suppliers.
Please look around my website and if you have any questions give me a call or drop me an email. I always love hearing from my customers!
Thank you for visiting.
