Vashon, WA (PRWEB) December 14, 2005
Seattle, WA December 14, 2005 -- Since 1998, when Brian and Frieda Schieber first got the idea to start their own alpaca farm near Seattle, Washington, the couple has developed a fervent love and passion for alpacas and the alpaca industry in general. They opened a retail Web site in 2002, called PurelyAlpaca.com, which caters to consumers who enjoy the benefits of clothing fabric produced from alpaca wool.
Why did the Schieber's choose alpacas? Alpacas are closely related to the llama family, and have soft, thick fleece that is washable, durable and hypo allergenic. These features, along with the friendly characteristics of alpacas, is why the Schiebers were so fascinated by the animals. Their Web site also reflects this, with photos of the alpacas and information about their farm.
Showing Support for South America and U.S. Alpaca Industries
The site offers a large selection of unique alpaca products that have been purchased from local artisans or stores in Lima, Peru under Fair Trade conditions. With the Fair Trade system, sellers in South America are guaranteed fair wages and working conditions, and are able to benefit from every purchase of their products.
Also, many items offered at the site, such as yarn, socks, children's clothes, scarves, artwork, etc. are from U.S. craft artists and mills, enabling the site to support the U.S. alpaca industry as well.
Holiday Shoppers find Unique Gift Ideas
Holiday shoppers who enjoy alpaca clothing and accessories will find an abundance of sweaters, scarves, gloves, caps, blankets and throws, and many other products at PurelyAlpaca.com. However, traditional apparel items are not all the Web site has to offer. Consumers can also browse through some very unusual and unique products at the site that aren't typically found in department stores. Parents find the alpaca fur toys to be a great gift for the little ones. Alpaca socks make a great stocking stuffer for those chilly winter nights. A well received fun stocking stuffer give is their "PacaPOO" Chocolate Covered Peanuts. The perfect funny preparatory gift for the alpaca farmer wannabee! There's even alpaca jewelry that is hand-crafted in Andean communities of South America, by people who live in harmony with alpacas.
Consumers who shop online at PurelyAlpaca.com for their holiday needs will enjoy fast shipping and personal customer service. They can also receive a free printed catalog by mail. Although alpaca products are still considered rare, they're growing in popularity quickly as many people discover the amazing quality and beauty alpaca wool offers.
PurelyAlpaca offers unique, incredibly beautiful alpaca clothing and accessories which support Fair Trade in Bolivia and Peru as well as supporting fiber artists in the USA.
