Our luxurious blankets made from the finest baby alpaca are hand-woven by master weavers in small mountain villages in the Peruvian Andes. Our local partner is a multi-award winning social entrepreneur with decades of experience in weaving. Instead of charity, they invest in handicrafts of the highest quality, design and education to generate stable and fair incomes for the alpaca weaving workshops.
Alpaca is one of the finest natural fibers from which to make blankets and plaids. Our blankets are thermoregulating, tear-resistant and almost as soft as cashmere, yet much more sustainable in production.
Alpaca wool is hypoallergenic, so this blanket is ideal for allergy sufferers or people with sensitive skin.

Good to know:
Alpacas graze freely in their herds on the vast open pastures in the Peruvian Andes. The wool for our blankets is bought directly from small shepherd families at fair prices. The shearing of the alpacas is done manually with special shears for the welfare of the animals as opposed to machines.
Airing instead of washing! Our baby alpaca blankets are a purely natural product, naturally very dirt-resistant, easy to care for and to a certain extent self-cleaning. Simply leave your blanket out in the fresh air overnight. This allows the fibres to regain their natural moisture.
Please do not wash, bleach, tumble dry or iron! Only professional, gentle dry cleaning
"We don't just want to create jobs, we want to create worthy jobs. Our job is always to help the individual workshops develop. We teach them to understand themselves as mini-companies, to set prices correctly, to plan operating costs and to grow in the long term."
