The Knit Lace Alpaca Scarf

  • This piece is inspired by the women of the Aran Islands long ago. We decided to rework four different lace style patterns typical of what the women here would have worn into deliciously soft alpaca wool. These are beautifully made by our knitter Marian. The result is a much hardier and wrinkle resistant display of fine lace knitting. A generous scarf, shoulder wrap and shawl to wear around the neck and shoulders or across the body tied with a belt.

  • 100% Alpaca.

    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.

The Travel Mask:

At this time we only produce in 1 size, Medium. Currently, we are NOT able to produce in Large due to production limitations during the COVID-19 lockdown. These are adult sizes only. We do not currently make masks for children.

We recommended mask size selection dimensions based on average face ratios. A women’s faces tends to be smaller than a man’s face so typically women will require a Medium and men will require a Large. We do recommend you check the size required by following our measuring guide below before ordering.

The dimensions of The Travel Mask are -

Medium: 23.5cm wide and 12.5cm high

Large: 26.5cm wide x 14.5cm high

So to select your size use this guide - with a measuring tape, measure the distance across the middle of your face over the tip of your nose to within 2cm from each ear. Next measure the distance between your chin to the bridge of your nose.

For Medium Travel masks -

Cross face measurements will be between 25cm and 28cm. Chin to the bridge of nose measurements will be between 10cm and 13cm.

For Large Travel Masks -

Cross face measurements will be between 28cm and 31cm. Chin to the bridge of nose measurements will be between 13cm and 16cm.
