Add a little cuddley to your living area with this adorable stuffed sheep! Made from alpaca fiber, it's so soft you'll want to snuggle up to it for no reason.
Alpacas, llamas, vicuñas, and guanacos are all members of the camelid family. Alpaca fiber is classified as a rare specialty fiber. It is both more lustrous and stronger than mohair, five times warmer than sheep wool fiber, and as soft and delicate as the world's finest fibers. The artisans in Villa Maria del Triunfo use this fiber to make winter woolens, purses, and stuffed animals. They are a small poverty-stricken community in Lima. While the artisans earn fair wages, and self respect, a portion of the proceeds are donated to Father Anthony to use within his parish. He offers a multitude of services to his parish, including a lunch "soup kitchen" type of operation, two medical clinics, a dental clinic, legal aid consulting and a full time social worker.
