This is one of our most popular scarves in our collection. Inspired by the women of the West of Ireland who kept warm by wrapping shawls over shawls across thier bodies, we designed this scarf to be light, functional and most of all, a pleasure to wear in many ways. Our deliciously soft Alpaca scarves display four different knit lace style patterns similar to what the women would have worn. Each scarf is carefully made by our knitter Marian. A generous large scarf for day to day, a wrap and evening dress shawl to wear around the neck and shoulders or across the body tied with a belt.
Size 2 metres x .8 metres.
The natural fibre is widely considered warmer and silkier than most other herd animals and often compared to cashmere. Alpacas do not produce lanolin, unlike sheep’s wool, which means it’s hypoallergenic and good for anyone who is a little sensitive to other natural fibres. Not only this, it really has minimal environmental impact in comparison too. They are only shorn once a year and require little processing to turn the fibre into a luxurious yarn. Their large hooves don’t pack down the soil and they graze lightly, not bothering trees. Altogether this makes alpaca wool one of the best examples of sustainable and eco-friendly wools out there, leaving few footprints on the planet.
Dry clean or hand wash in cold water with non bio, dry flat,naturally.
