Material: 50% Alpaca, 40% Lamb’s Wool and 10% Acrylic
Woven by a small, family run business in the Andean highlands of Ecuador these large size blankets are made from a luxurious and practical blend of Alpaca, Lamb’s Wool and Acrylic. The blanket has a fun, bold geometric design, the weaving technique provides a versatile blanket with one darker, bolder side and one lighter more subtle side. Big enough to keep 2 people cosy on a cold evening!
Alpaca is a highly versatile natural fibre. It is lighter and warmer than other wools owing to its hollow fibre and natural crimp (wave in each fibre) creating multiple tiny pockets of air that are warmed, providing exceptional insulating qualities. This combined with its breathability and wicking properties ensures you always maintain a perfect body temperature. Alpaca is naturally soft and has a wonderful sheen making it a comfortable to touch and attractive. Alpaca and lambswool are naturally hypoallergenic once finished. By combining Alpaca with lambswool and acrylic we can provide the luxury of alpaca at an affordable price.
Alpaca & Lambswool Blanket Pentagon
For a long and happy relationship with your blanket it is best to wash infrequently, wools have naturally self-cleaning properties, so just air outside in dry weather to keep fresh. If you do have a spill remove immediately with a damp cloth and dry naturally. If you do need to wash your blanket, they can be machine washed separately on a wool care cycle at 30°C with a gentle liquid detergent. Dry naturally and do not tumble dry.
