Alpaca Wool Project

Region: Latin America

Country: Bolivia

Missioner On This Project

Fr. Gregory McPhee, M.M.

SUPPORT THIS PROJECT

This project works in collaboration with a congregation of religious sisters, Hermanas Misioneras de Cristo Sediento, to sell alpaca wool and some artisanal alpaca crafts. The Sisters spin alpaca wool into 200 yard skeins for sale. The crafts will be a few hand-made sweaters, scarves, shawls and blankets. The proceeds will support the ministries of the religious Sisters to the local population.

"Whoever is kind to the poor lends to the Lord, and will be repaid in full"
