Frog Tree Yarn (Sport Weight)

We are happy to announce that we have added Frog Tree Alpaca sport weight yarn to our shop.
Here's a little history about T&C Imports who is the importer of Frog Tree Alpaca.

"In 1997 we started purchasing a variety of products from various artisans/non-profit groups in Latin America. One of our primary imports is Alpaca yarn, which is produced by a non-profit cooperative in Bolivia. This cooperative has trained between 800 and1200 women to produce beautiful hand knit articles from this yarn. The women are paid fairly for their work. We strive to provide a way for women to provide for their families' basic needs and invest in community development, yet still be able to maintain their traditional lifestyles with dignity. The Alpaca yarn has become so popular that our non-profit cooperative in Bolivia has been unable to keep up with the demand. As a result, we have expanded our scope, and are now working with another supplier in Peru."

"Purchases made by Frog Tree Yarns are intended to provide support to the individual artisans and non-profit groups. We operate as a not-for-profit company, and do not take any salaries for our efforts. Excess funds generated by T & C Imports are used to provide educational assistance to individuals and support to educational projects."

Sounds like to supplier that we want to support.
