A mum of two has started selling hand-made Peruvian knitwear for children.

Amanda Ruiz, 37, of Myland, Colchester, launched the firm after marrying a Peruvian and getting gifts from his family for her son.

The range of clothes include ponchos and hooded tops to hats and gloves.

They are made out of alpaca wool known as "the gold of the Andes".

"I thought it would be great to sell the clothes, as they are so soft and warm and are naturally hypo-allergenic."

The knitwear is Alpaca wool mixed with acrylic wool to make it machine-washable.

It will be on display at the Mother, Toddler and Baby Show at Colchester Leisure Centre on Saturday and Sunday.
