These blankets are a shop favourite. Stunning beyond compare. Silky soft, impeccably woven, and the attention to detail can be seen in every stitch. Alpaca fur is a soft and luxuriously silky natural fibre. Sourced from an exquisite range of alpaca fur and woven products, that are hand made by artisan families coming directly from South America. Alpacas are pasture raised in their natural habitat high in the Andes. They have to withstand extreme temperature fluctuations, therefore their fibres are extremely fine, soft, strong and naturally water repellent. The unique fibre structure results in products that are lightweight, warm and beautifully soft to touch.
