Where are your Minta products made?
Our Minta products are woven by a family-run mill in the Scottish borders from 100% undyed British alpaca.
Where do you source your alpaca fibre?
All of our alpaca fibre is sourced from small alpaca breeders across Great Britain. Our Minta products use only the natural colours of the alpaca fleece, to ensure the best finish we have the fibre bespoke spun into yarn here in the UK.
Why do you use alpaca?
Alpaca fibre is exceptionally soft, strong, insulating and hypoallergenic as it doesn’t contain any lanolin, making it suitable for those with sensitivity to wool.
As we source the alpaca fibre ourselves as raw fleeces from British breeders we are able to ensure we only work with fully traceable and ethically sourced yarn. By sourcing the alpaca locally it has a much lower carbon footprint and so is a more sustainable.
How do I care for my Minta product?
We recommend our Minta products are cleaned by specialist dry clean only and advise moth protection is used when storing for longer periods of time.
