100% acrylic. Made in Perú.
Minga?s finger puppets (various animals) are a creative modern adaptation of the knitting tradition of the indigenous Chucuito Indian community of Perú. Members of the Chucuito community knit warm clothing and whimsical toys for their families, with yarn spun from alpaca and sheep wool. The art of knitting is learned by both boys and girls when young. While both male and female of the community take the needles in hand, each has their own specialty. Men create their traditional festive attire, and women carry on the tradition of knitting finger puppets. The quality, detail and creativity of each finger puppet reflects the joy of the Chucuito women in their art, and brings delight to all the young at heart!
