Warm, elegant, soft and perfect for both your casual or dressed up occasions.
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 which I have left un dyed. throughout the length of the shawl I have added touches of hand dyed merino, linen and silk. The whole is woven on a merino warp. The merino is grown and processed in NSW. Both ends are carefully hand stitched, a process done while still on the loom. With its subtle additions of texture and colour in indigo dyed yarns, added carefully during the weaving process, this piece is truely unique.
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 in a shaded area. Iron with a cool iron, using a clean tea towel to protect the wrap. Not to be tumble dried.
