Today, Ava is wearing the beautifully made Miou Mademoiselle Coat and Bonnet in Plum.
A favorite of Jessica Alba‘s daughter Honor Marie Warren, the Vancouver, Canada based designer brand specializes in exquisite knitwear hand made from the finest baby alpaca wool. All their designer knitwear for girls and boys are hand-made by artisans in rural Peru, where knitting is a centuries-old tradition handed down from one generation to the next.
Alba who is an eco-friendly mom probably first chose to dress her daughter in Miou because they are committed to caring for the environment. Alpacas are browsers rather than grazers so they have a very low impact on the pastures where they are raised. This makes alpaca wool one of the most eco-friendly natural fibres available.
I personally love the alpaca wool. This type of wool was called “the fibre of the gods” by the ancient Incas. I truly understand why because it’s super soft and feels as luxurious as cashmere.
Alpaca wool is also an excellent insulator and is extremely durable. Its fibres are elastic and will stretch to fit your children as they grow. Because it doesn’t contain lanolin, alpaca wool is hypoallergenic and doesn’t irritate the skin. It naturally repels water and has antibacterial properties so your knitwear will stay clean longer.
