A gloriously soft fine shawl woven in suri, silk & wool
1 in stock
Just the thing to compliment any of your outfits in style, this handwoven shawl is made from suri alpaca fibre sourced from our own herd right here on the farm. The fleece is processed locally into a fine yarn, making it a truely sustainable local product.
I have plied the undyed suri yarn with a very fine silk thread and also a fine pale green wool. During the weaving process I have also added random bands of the silk, highlighting the beautiful shine of the tan coloured silk. While the shawl has a very light texture to its weave, suri is the softest of alpaca fibres so you can wrap it around your bare arms and be itch-free. it will drape elegantly around the body – it’s warmer than wool, so you’ll feel extra cosy on those cool days and chilly nights.
This shawl measures 182cm x 57cm (58in x 22.5in) and weighs 395grams. Warm, elegant, soft and perfect for both your casual or dressed up occasions.
Alpaca fibre is resilient and this wrap will keep its shape and softness for years.
Should you need to wash it, do so by hand only, squeezing out excess water by folding it in a towel and pressing down. Do not wring. Dry laid out flat and unstretched in a shaded area. Iron with a cool iron, using a clean tea towel to protect the wrap. Not to be tumble dried.
