…at the ABURY Alpaca Wool Headband

The Alpaca Wool Headband is comfy and chic at the same time. It is the perfect way to keep your ears warm, to look stylish and edgy without messing up the hair! The headband is a great complement to any winter outfit with extraordinary quality material and a cultural story on top.

All of the ABURY wool accessories are handmade by local artisans in a small village in the Ecuadorian Andes – a group of knitting women of the Salinas who have joined in this association to use their craft skills making beautiful apparel and accessories.
