For the stuffed-animal lovers, the fuzzy hand-sewn cotton and paper vicuna is a lovely Peruvian addition to the tree. Vicunas are creatures related to llamas and alpacas that reside in the high Andes. They have special wool that makes them highly sought after since the time of the Incas, so the species is now protected in several South American countries. These ornaments are handmade by artisans in Peru with the organization Manos Amigas, “Hands Joined In Friendship,” which provides materials and artisan support to create a variety of handicrafts in impoverished areas.
Decorative Only. Keep out of reach of children.
