Little Llama thinks in terms of sustainability all the way around. And we are constantly trying to optimize where we can with our partners
In the words of the Brundtland Report from 1987, sustainability is that which "provides the best for people and the environment without harming the ability of future generations to meet their needs".
So the fact that our knitwear can be used for many years, and has an extremely long shelf life, offers a lot of possibilities.
We have had the pleasure of meeting Jesper, who has great knowledge and experience with alpaca in particular and especially the very soft and exclusive baby alpaca, he has had sweaters that he has used for over 30 years. It's crazy to think that knitting in baby alpaca can last so long. this means that several siblings can use it, and it means that the clothes can be saved for the next generation or they can be sold on for the enjoyment of other children. We also help with resale, so the clothes can be useful for many years.
The sustainability principles distinguish themselves precisely by taking care of the interaction between different processes and that we must incorporate the mutual dependencies that exist in the world.
For little Llama, it means a lot that the clothes are self-cleaning because they are naturally in the yarn. This means that knitting in baby alpaca wool is actually not necessary, the clothes can just be aired out on a hanger, preferably in damp weather, which is enough for the yarn to lift and air through.
If there is a stain on the clothes, read on under washing instructions and different types of wool
