    FAQ's

    Q: What are some fun alpaca facts?

    Q: Does it hurt the alpaca to get its fleece?
    Alpacas are not harmed while their fleece is harvested for Poko products. In fact, alpaca wool is one of the most ethical fibres available. Our partner farmers take great care in gently shearing the wool and releasing the animal back to roam freely. Alpaca fibre does not contain lanolin, which means alpaca does not require strong chemicals to clean it.

    I love this sweater

    I bought this sweater two or three years ago at the Third World Bazaar and it is my favourite sweater of all, ever! Soft, cozy, very warm and not scratchy at all! Perfect with leggings too! I’m here to order a new once as this morning I found that my pup had eaten the pocket out and there’s a huge hole in in! I hope there is no difference between the one I bought before and this one that I’m ordering again so fingers crossed.

    Thank you for your review, Cynthia, the Mia Alpaca Sweaters are still the same classic design! So glad you love it! ❤️❤️❤️
