Our luxurious Shawl / oversize scarf is made of 100% sustainable Peruvian baby alpaca wool, the softest and one of the finest natural fibres in the world.
TEXTURE.Alpaca fibre is silky and soft. Its thickness ranges from 18 to 22 microns (cashmere is 19 microns) yet remainslight and breathable.
DURABLEAlpaca fibre is stronger than sheep's wool and more resistant to water, which makes it last wash after wash.
HYPOALLERGENICUnlike sheep's wool, the alpaca fibre does not contain lanolin, which makes it hypoallergenic and suitable for sensitive skin.
LIGHT & WARMAlpaca fibre is seven times warmer than sheep's wool and contains microscopic air pockets, which makes very light weight but breathable garments.SUSTAINABLEAlpacas are free grazing animals bred naturallyin the highlands of Peru without pesticides. They are not fed with hormones and do not receive chemicals.ECONOMICThe number of fibres needed to make an alpaca item of clothing are considerably reduced when compared with wool from other animals. It takes just one alpaca to make up to five jumpers!COLOURThe alpaca fibre has a natural colour spectrum which ranges from pure white to intense black and includes over thirty shades.
Given the delicate nature of this baby alpaca product we recommend a hand wash or dry clean only.
