An intrepid Norwegian couple, Kari Hestnes and Per Svendsen, at the time owners of Du Store Alpakka, took several
trips to Peru to visit their supplier Michell & Cia. In 2005 they went up to the highlands to visit the Michell farm,
Mallkini, for the first time. During that trip they met Marisol and Alex, young children of alpaca shepherds working
at Mallkini. Kari and Per were enchanted by them, taken by their charismatic simplicity.
