Spirituality meets knit sweater. The traditional symbolism on our divinely soft alpaca sweater tells the story of friendship between the indigenous communities and their alpacas. High up in the Andes in harmony with Mother Nature. Our 100% alpaca knit sweater is handmade by Mr. Ruben on his traditional knitting machine as a small series. Fair, natural and uniquely soft on the skin. Limited edition. Only 60 works of art are produced.Size: S

Fair: We know our knitting artists personally and maintain fair relationships - even friendships. With your ACHIY knit sweater you help us to keep the traditional Peruvian knitting art of our friends alive. Alpacas are part of the unique heritage of Peruvian traditions. With your purchase you contribute directly to the livelihood of local families whose greatest pride is to bring the divinely soft wool products into the world. Natural: All our actions are influenced by the desire to act in harmony with Mother Earth. For this simple reason, our knit sweaters are made of 100% baby alpaca wool from the Peruvian highlands. For our labels on the sweaters we use alternative pineapple leather (Pinatex). Experience the real purity. Divinely soft: The insider name for alpaca wool is also the “fleece of the gods”. The legendary softness arises from the special nature of the wool fibers and creates a uniquely warm, silky and soft skin feeling. And when it is warm outside, let the coolness of the alpaca wool surprise you.   Shipping: All our sweaters are shipped with RePack. The reusable packaging consists of recycled materials. RePack packaging is designed to last at least 20 order cycles, saving up to 80% CO2 emissions.

ACHIY

Achiy - Alpaca Knits

Hamburg, Germany

Shop Owner: Vivica Pietz

On Urbankissed since: 2020

Achiy is a German sustainable & ethical brand. You won’t find any industrial machinery here. For us, our knitters are artists. We consider each of our conscious sweaters & cardigans to be a work of art that is shaped by the lives, traditions and spirituality of our partners. We produce our sustainable sweaters 100% in the country of origin. As we are guided by traditional production methods of indigenous people, all our knits are carefully handmade.

  • No unfair working conditions and exploitative contracts. The lives of the people in our production countries are our inspiration. We follow resource-saving traditional manufacturing techniques.
  • In the production of our sweaters, we only use certified knitting yarns of known origin that use biodegradable dyes and are therefore, approved for international ecological standards and tested for harmful substances. Certifications: AZO, OEKO-TEX and REACH. 
  • Our divinely soft baby alpaca wool is sourced from Michell in Peru - a pioneer and the world’s leading manufacturer and exporter of alpaca yarns. Michell’s alpaca wool is certified by the International Alpaca Association. These labels are a symbol of the highest quality and durability.
  • RePack is our shipping partner and reduces CO2 emissions by 80%. The packaging is made of recycled materials and designed to last at least 20 order cycles. Due to the size adjustment you no longer send unnecessary air.
