Luxury Alpaca Throw
Whether you’re cosying on the sofa or reading in bed, there’s nothing quite like the feeling of an all-natural blanket wrapped around you. This handwoven alpaca throw in warming tones of jewel-like wine, antique rust, calming grey, and earthy browns has been crafted by traditional weavers in Peru. The colours blend together in a checked square design, and either end has a twisted feature fringe.
Alpaca fibre is renowned for its silky soft texture, insulating properties, and for being naturally water resistant – but did you know that it’s also hypoallergenic? Unlike sheep wool it doesn’t contain lanolin, so won’t irritate skin.
