Finest Quality baby alpaca.
Strong, fine alpaca wool with its special soft glow has ‘hollow’ fibres, as they are called, which adapt to great ranges of temperature: after all, the wool comes from animals that live in the desert and mountain regions of South America! The baby alpaca we use is a particularly fine micron 19-23 wool and comes mostly from the first shearing – quite a rarity. The result is both light and warm – and incredibly soft. We’ve had two scarves made of this on hand-looms giving a nice woven edge and natural fringe.
Although the scarves are two-toned, they appear to have three, thanks to the special weaving process employed to give more variety.
