This soft scarf woven with our own alpaca yarn is deliciously soft and warm. Rich green wool has been added to the un dyed alpaca, with vibrant pink silk running the length of the scarf These threads form a long fringe at the base.
The scarf is double width, sewn along its length (ie lying flat it would be 20cm wide) making it essentially a long tube. This traps the air inside and insulates against the cold, making the scarf light but extremely warm.
Our alpaca products are truely sustainable with all fibre coming from either our own herd or those of a neighbouring farm. We clean the fleece of vegetable matter and select the best of the locks. Due to the fragile nature of the suri fibre we then send it to a local small scale mill, just a couple hundred kilometres away. Once they have cleaned, carded and spun it into the fine yarn, it is returned to us. We then weave this luxurious yarn as is, in its natural colour, or we gently dye it ourselves, using either natural or gentle non toxic dyes.
Alpaca fibre is resilient and this scarf will keep its shape and softness for years.
