Made from 100% natural undyed Alpaca fleece, hand (drop) spun and hand knitted, this silky soft blanket will keep you snuggly and warm this winter.
This beautiful soft and cuddly blanket has been hand spun and hand knitted by artisans from a Fair Trade community near Juliaca, Peru. Alpaca has long been considered among the finest of fibres. Indeed, the Incas called it the 'fibre of the gods'.
As white alpaca fibre is easily dyed, the natural colour of the alpaca were being bred out. In order to protect and maintain coloured alpaca stock, our Fair Trade partners undertook the development project of preserving the natural coloured alpaca.
