Landed in the US! Update for all November backers

Posted by PAKA (Creator)

Hey fam,

The flight arrived yesterday from Peru! They were going to deliver the shipment via a courier service, but it wouldn't have arrived until Thursday, so I rented a U-Haul myself and drove up to Washington DC today to get your sweaters :)

(I promise I only crashed the U-Haul twice)

We have a great team at our distribution center who will be sending out all packages over the next few days. You'll receive an email with a tracking # as soon as your package is sent out!

Much love and happy holidays,

- PAKA team

      Thrilled to have received the hoodie and beanie today. Absolutely gorgeous, soft, well-made, and not itchy. My only regret...I ordered for my son and not for me. Time to order mine! Thank you so much for bringing these beautiful garments to us, and thank you for developing this cottage industry. xxoo.

      Can we change our shipping addresses if we are leaving Charlottesville for Winter break before the sweaters arrive? If not is there a place we can pick them up in Charlottesville tomorrow instead of you shipping us to the address?
