This stunning alpaca scarf is handmade of the highest quality baby alpaca yarn, creating a textured intricate design with a luxuriously soft feel. This scarf has a complex array of gorgeous blues, greens and grays, with a touch of lavender.
Considered by many a higher quality material than cashmere, alpaca is one of the world’s most valuable natural fibers. Just ask any Incan Emperor why only the royal families were allowed to wear it! It is luxuriously soft (not at all itchy), hypoallergenic, breathable, warm, lightweight and durable. Best of all, it is a natural, eco-friendly fiber and the artisans are paid fair wages.
