Salka Knits is born from the belief that beautiful things can be made ethically using sustainable materials.
We work with skilled artisans from Peru to bring you unique and high quality knitwear.
Our knitwear pieces are designed to be timeless and adaptable, for year on year appeal.
The materials we use are all sustainably sourced, and of premium quality.
Each garment is hand knitted by women's cooperatives in Peru. This enables the women to turn their skills and talents into livable financial rewards and for their families to thrive with dignity.
Alpacas are a domesticated species of South American camelid that produce one of the world’s most luxurious fibres.
Softer than cashmere, lighter, warmer and more durable than sheep’s wool
The fibres are hypo-allergenic and suitable for sensitive skins
The hollow fibre makes it suitable for all seasons, giving it a lightweight feel
It does not pill or ball
The Incas used it to produce textiles and clothing for royalty and the elite
Alpacas come in 22 natural colours
