Wool blanket gradient
Horizon with color gradient. Made from recycled alpaca and virgin wool.
The Danish manufacturer Elvang calls this wool blanket "Horizon", and not by chance, because its pattern also reminds us of the horizon, where sea and sky meet and the rising or setting sun is reflected. The harmonious, almost natural-looking change from light to dark on the checkered basic pattern is created solely by the use of differently colored yarns. These in turn consist of 50% recycled alpaca and 40% recycled virgin wool. Elvang obtains the material from the cut and woven remnants that are produced during quality control as well as during the processing of the textiles on site. Thus, it is known exactly what kind of wool remnants are involved, namely only the alpaca and sheep's wool of Peruvian origin processed by Elvang itself, which Elvang purchases at fair conditions from its partners in Peru and also has processed there. The 10% polyamide and acrylic fibers are due to the manufacturing process and cannot be sorted out. However, this proportion ensures that the blanket retains its shape and can perform its warming service for a long time.
Peruvian Handicaft, Scandinavian Design. Elvang.
The Danish label Elvang stands for Scandinavian design tradition and textiles made from Peruvian alpaca hair – in the fibres’ country of origin. The idea came to Tina and Lasse Elvang, the brand’s founders, on a backpacking trip through Peru in 2002. When they came into contact with alpacas, their wonderfully soft hair and the traditional local textile craft, they found the entire package highly inspiring. They decided to venture into the collaboration of two worlds – based on ethical trade principles. A year later, they launched their first collection, and a global success story began. Mercantile integrity is still a high priority for the brand. Elvang is a “guaranteed member” of the World Fair Trade Organisation: the most elevated status conferred by the organisation.
