I bought a jumper here and it was great as it was 100 % alpaca and it was fair trade too. Also I like the fact that there were not llama designs on the jumper which means I can wear it back at home .

During each of my trips I'm always looking for a good quality gifts. I refuse to buy the mass produced chinese gadgets. I've been travelling a lot in South America and at one moment I started to have a feeling that everywhere - from Venezuela, through Colombia to Uruguay you can find the same ceramic pots and figures...
