Alpaca Wool Headband - Ash, Peru

This sumptuously soft headband features an alpaca and highland wool blend.  Wide enough to almost be a hat, this stylish headband has a knot in the front, creating a beautiful, easy-to-wear design.

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, breathable, warm, lightweight and durable.  Best of all, it is a natural, eco-friendly fiber and the artisans are paid fair wages.  

50% alpaca, 50% highland wool.
