    The item matches the description and the quality of the sewing is good. It's a good size for my pans. I will try today the Norwegian pot but I will protect it with aluminum foil to avoid any dirt on the fabric in white background with in addition a cork dish bottom covered with aluminum.

    Very nice soles. They are just a little wide and therefore do not fit in all shoes. But other than that, it's perfect.

    I slipped these soles into my slippers:
    They are very soft, and let the foot breathe even in the middle of summer.
    I recommend.

Manufacture of clothing and accessories from the wool of our Alpacas

The alpaca and the hummingbird is the adventure of our family who engages in an integral ecological approach through happy sobriety and peasant craftsmanship. We transform the wool of our fleece animals by fleece to make soft and warm clothes in knitting and manual weaving, felt objects (soles, manique, carpets ...) and various pieces in padding (pillow, Norwegian pot ...)

It is a life project that allows us to find more coherence between our actions and our personal and ecological convictions. It started in July 2017 when we moved into Ecolectif, a Colibri oasis in Haute Garonne that brings together about twenty adults and as many children engaged in the construction of a new paradigm of life turned towards benevolence and care for nature. 

By listening to our sensibilities and our "talents", we have undertaken a global approach to reappropriation of the wool sector, with the ethical, local and ecological production of sustainable clothing and accessories. We have trained and gleaned different old wool trades that we are reviving.

We also welcomed a herd of 27 alpacas in July 2018

These Andean camelids live about twenty years and are characterized by their great hardiness and very low ecological impact.

Each year they produce an average of 3kg of fleece of exceptional quality. As soft as cashmere, it is 7 times warmer than sheep's wool. Alpacas do not produce ooze, so this wool is naturally hypoallergenic and does not require washing before processing. The play of the selection and mixtures of fleeces makes it possible to obtain without dyeing up to 24 natural colors ranging from white to black passing by gray, brown or greige. We also make vegetable dyes, from flowers, bark, mushrooms ...

Baby fleeces called "Crias" or the finest adult fleeces are spun and then we knit them (clothes and accessories).

When the softness to the touch is less pleasant, fleeces are used in felting or padding (soles, slippers, hats, pillows, carpets, Norwegian pots ...)
