Magdina - Peru

Magdina is the Queen of Hand-Knitting! She is Manager of the Suri Andino women’s knitting group, based in Southern Peru near Lake Titicaca. 

Working mostly in 100% Baby Alpaca fibres, they work together to craft the most beautiful hand knitted items for La Sierra.

Magdina and her friends produce our luxurious cable knit jumpers and smaller items including our beanies, socks, gloves and mittens.

Magdina and her husband also lead the way in helping people to maintain skills passed down through generations of working with Alpaca fibre.
