Our luxurious reversible scarves are the newest addition to our alpaca collection. They are thinner and lighter weight than our brushed alpaca, but just as warm. They feature a special artisanal fiber blend including baby alpaca, super fine alpaca, and acrylic. Each side has different colors so it's like having 2 scarves in one. This version has gray and blue stripes on one side and light purple and gray on the other.
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.
