As utilitarian as it is cute, the Alqo Wasi Alpaca Snowflake Hat fits blocky headed dogs better than any hat or snood we've come across! The Alpaca Fiber is soft and warm, keeping your dog's velvety ears from feeling the winter chill. Cheerful snowflake fairisle print and silly pom pom will turn heads and start a lot of conversations about how cute your dog is. These hats have tons of stretch and fit blocky-headed dogs really well, yet they won't slide off when your dog shakes and flaps.
ABOUT ALPACA: Native Andean herdsmen shear the alpaca every other year at the onset of the rainy season. Seven times stronger and three times warmer than merino wool, alpaca fiber contains microscopic air pockets that help to create a lightweight garment with extremely high insulating properties. Alpaca is a sheared fiber, so it is renewable and sustainable.
ABOUT ALQO WASI: Their knitters are Peruvian women with low resources and are experts in weaving in hand looms, hand knitting and hand embroidering. They come from vulnerable and marginal zones. Working for ALQO WASI gives them the opportunity to develop their creative capabilities, making them feel more confident in themselves and revaluing the position of women and the important role they carry for the progress of their homes and community. (In other words, ALQO WASI ROCKS!)
