Asian Groom Ornament in Hand Knit Alpaca
Hand-knit from an alpaca wool blend, this ornament is a great gift for newlyweds or a special anniversary. Arcadia Home bride and groom ornaments also make great napkin rings, or favors for weddings and showers. Approximately 4.25".
Made by a group of accomplished women knitters in Peru, Arcadia Home's popular line of Fair Trade knitted ornaments are knit from an alpaca blend. Not only is alpaca a wonderfully luxurious natural fiber, but alpaca cultivation provides small family farmers in the area with a steady source of income (and fabulous gardening fertilizer). Alpaca are also one of the few herd animals whose grazing and roaming do not damage the terrain they live on.
