    Baby Alpaca & Wool sweaters and cardigans for woman | KNITBRARY

    Our lives changed in recent times. We couldn’t meet each other, we couldn’t touch each other, but we continued to communicate in many ways, not just through verbal or written language.

    The words "text" and "textile" have the same origin and like the poet, the knitter links elements to compose an honest dialogue full of meaning.

    Ancient techniques become new for writing a discourse that travels from the past to the present to remind us who we are.

    A calligraphy drawn with elegant gestures that transmits serenity and passion, a message that gives us hope.

    the Cardigan in Natural Camel | by Knitbrary

    by Knitbrary is authenticity and simplicity.

    A series of multifunctional, utilitarian and genderless pieces with an individual character.

    The alpacas have the most color diverse fiber on the planet. These amazing animals grow in a wide variety of more than twenty beautiful natural shades ranging from delicate ivory and grey to soft fawn, brown and black hues.

    Since our first trip to Peru in 2011 we have been in love with this generous range of natural colors of the alpacas and we have always wanted to develop a collection using them

    On the other hand, we also had in mind to develop a permanent edition of basic and genderless pieces.

    Last year we decided to merge these two ideas, essential styles in natural colors, and we launched by Knitbrary. A new line of undyed genderless pieces. Intentionally simple designs artisanally built in our workshop in Arequipa (Peru) using, as we always do, 100% natural yarns.

    In the Fall/Winter of 2020 we presented the wool Series, a first series of 100% Peruvian Highland Wool pieces knitted in two natural colors.

    the Roll-edge in Natural Camel | by Knitbrary

    This year we are delighted to introduce you the baby alpaca Series, a capsule collection of 100% Baby Alpaca pieces knitted in three natural colors.

    Baby Alpaca, formerly the most cherished fiber and reserved exclusively for Inca royalty, comes from the first sheer of a young alpaca.

    For this first edition of the baby alpaca Series we have meticulously selected natural beige, grey and camel yarns to create simple and multifuntional desings. All of them conceived genderless to adapt to different types of silhouettes.

    All these designer sweaters, cardigans and beanies have been knitted by Mrs. Hirma and Mr. Francisco in our Arequipa (Peru) workshop sharing our love for crafts, tradition and beauty. Hirma and Francisco have captured their know-how and delicacy in pieces that combine austere designs with the softness of baby alpaca fiber.

    If you don't find a piece in your favourite color or if your size is not available, please note that we can knit it especially for you. Please contact us and we will be delighted to help you in the best possible way.

    the Ribbed | by Knitbrary

    Since we created KNITBRARY we have been in love with the generous color range of the alpacas.

    We have always wanted to develop a collection that gave prominence to the natural colors of the yarns, but after a careful thought, we decided that we couldn't or shouldn't just create a one-time collection.

    And so "by Knitbrary" was born, a new line of undyed genderless pieces. Intentionally simple designs artisanally built in our workshop in Arequipa (Peru) using, as we always do, (100%) natural yarns.

    The "wool Series", 100% Peruvian Highland Wool, consists of transeasonal styles available in 2 natural colors.

    We are already looking for new yarns and colors to create new series of enduring and honest pieces with an individual character.

    We will have news soon.

    Please stay tuned!
