Alpaca Blend Wrap
Stronger than mohair, smoother than silk, finer than cashmere, and warmer than wool. Designed in collaboration with a family of indigenous artisans who live in the volcanic Andean mountain range.
This product is part of the Artisan Alpaca Series and connects you to their long textile tradition.Hand-loomed alpaca is non-itchy, breathable, lightweight, and water-repellent. Not to mention supremely soft to the touch, and easier than wool to care for.
This versatile and luxurious alpaca wrap, shawl, or blanket scarf looks beautiful paired with a party dress or simple jeans. Bring it to the office to throw over your shoulders, or wear it around the house any way you see fit. (It's also reversible.) This scarf has you covered for every occasion. That’s a wrap!

***Sometimes the Ecuadorian Alpaca throws shed at the beginning of use, but after some use, the fibers elasticize to themselves and stop shedding. In my personal use, I place my alpaca blanket in the washing machine and then hang it to dry, and the process of soaking it with water and then drying it, tends to expedite the process of elasticization.
