Foot & Clothes > Alpaca Scarves & Throws
Alpaca is one of the world’s most renowned sustainable & eco-friendly fibers. The alpacas are sheared once a year in spring and the fiber is spun into yarn. Superior to wool, alpaca fiber is extremely soft, lightweight, and amazingly warm with its naturally insulating core. It does not contain lanolin, making it hypoallergenic. The perfect combination for cold weather accessories. These scarves and throws are crafted by a variety of artisan groups within the indigenous communities of the Andes Mountain Region of South America. We are committed to supporting the social and economic advancement for the artisans & their families in these small communities through fair wages and direct incentives.
