Handwoven blanket "Coya" made of baby alpaca is a modern interpretation of traditional Peruvian motifs. It has a beautiful, complex diamond pattern with subtle accent stripes. The super soft and remarkably lightweight material is so luxurious that it was once reserved only for Inca kings. Each blanket is hand-woven by master weavers in a small mountain village in the Peruvian Andes in a fair-trade environment. The production time of a single blanket is about one week.
Alpaca fibers are one of the finest natural hairs from which to make blankets and plaids. Our blankets are thermoregulating, tear-resistant and almost as soft as cashmere, but 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. Mulesing is never practised here.
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
